The Go Green April Easter Egg Hunt at Wye Dene and Funges Meadow LNR

by | Apr 18, 2017 | News |

6 local volunteers (3 young people and 3 adults) and our community partners from High Wycombe Fire Brigade supported the paid team of 5 rangers and Dan Wilson which made this ambitious two site event possible.

Approx 150 children and 90 adults attended enjoying a variety of green activities from planting meadow plug plants at Funges Meadow and water marginal plants in the Wye Dene pond to Forest Crafts and Art at Wye Dene, to camp fire cooking, tree climbing, pond dipping and bug hunting at Funges Meadow LNR.

Over double the number of people attended in comparison to last year’s one site event. I was pleased that we met a good number of Wye Dene Residents and saw many of them walking along the river to enjoy their local nature reserve.

Approx 50 children and 50 Parents from Marsh Infant School attended. Please see their website which tells their story of the day. http://www.marshschool.com/in-the-community-and-beyond/
