Sherwood Pines Discovery Day to celebrate wonder of the woods

Sherwood Pines Cycle Club is urging everyone to saddle up when it takes part in a free mega Discovery Day in Sherwood Pines Forest Park on Sunday 30th September.

Robin Hood’s old stomping ground will be the Forestry Commission venue for a frenzy of rustic revelry, including an amazing chainsaw carver, Nordic walking and lots of other exciting arts and crafts activities for kids.

The thriving cycle club will also be offering free guided rides suitable for all ability levels. Set up just a few years ago membership has swelled to over 100 members with yet more interest being sparked by Britain’s two wheeled successes this year. Organisers, including Sharon Daniels, from Rainworth, whose family of four are all keen club members, will be encouraging more folk to discover the joys of pedal power in the forest.

Pam Warhurst, Forestry Commission chairman, said: “We are an organisation built on the passion and experience of people who really care about what they do and this is reflected in the way we manage the Public Forest Estate in England. We want to welcome everyone to get involved in our Forest Discovery Day at Sherwood Pines.”

Similar Discovery Days are being staged across major Forestry Commission sites in England to celebrate the nation’s fantastic woods.

Activities take place between 10am and 3pm. For further information and to download a free leaflet of fun activities go to www.forestry.gov.uk/discoveryday
