Spooky nature event - Sat 13 Oct 5.00-7.30pm
Join us at the Mill between 5-6pm to make lanterns to light up the valley during our torchlight procession at 6pm (bring a clean empty jam jar to make your lantern, if you have one). You can also get your face painted as a creature of the night to help ward of any evil spirits that may be lurking in the woods!
There will be a bat walk from 6.30pm where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these elusive and magical creatures with the help of experts from Avon Bat Group. Paul Gollege of the Hawk and Owl Trust will also be on hand to enable you meet an owl close up. You will be amazed at how beautiful they are.
At 7pm there will be ghost stories at a secret location somewhere in the woods - will any of the valley's ghosts join us - who knows?
The event is FREE and everyone is welcome. This event has is funded by the BIG Lottery's Awards for All fund and organised by Avon Wildlife Trust.
