Paupers Wood Forest School has a drop-in woodland playgroup. Stroll round the wood kicking the leaves. Sit on a log and sing a welcome song to everyone and hear the qualified forest teacher read some autumnal poems from a book.
Every week has a different theme, for example animals that hibernate & reasons why they hibernate. You’ll get to make something,perhaps out of dough, sticks and leaves before sitting round the fire with a snack, perhaps some forest made popcorn, and helping in turns to carefully stoke the fire. Simple but delightful fun. There are no formal toilet facilities but a ‘wee-tree’.1pm on Wednesdays which costs £4.50. Paupers Wood, Nell Lane, Didsbury M20 Tel: 0161 445 3520/ 07790 368117
