This will take place on Saturday 9th September between 12noon and 4pm at the Orpen Hall & Lorkin Daniell Field. What we hope will become an annual event, this is intended for all the family to enjoy and to help build community bonds.
Steve Hallam will lead a guided walk to seek out berries, soft fruit, nuts, seeds & fungi. All of these are now out in abundance. To join Steve you should meet him at the Old Church at 10am on Sunday 16th October -wear suitable clothing!
Steve will explain the folklore about the finds, which ones should not be eaten – and what will happen to you if you do! You should expect to see around 20 types of berries, fruits and nuts.
The walk will take in Hillhouse Wood and surrounding hedgerows, and will thus be a little longer than normal.
Strong boots or wellies should be worn, as we may encounter long wet grass!
