Great outdoors for great events

THERE are activities on offer for all ages at Wallington.

A range of woodland-based activities for both adults and children, such as fire-making, shelter-building and tool-making, is available at the National Trust-managed estate on Sunday.

The event will run from 10am to 2pm and costs £10 for adults, £5 children and £20 for a family ticket. Booking is essential.

On Tuesday, the Cambo estate will present a Propagation Workshop when the gardening team will deliver a hands-on session.

Participants will even be able to take the fruits of their labour back to their own gardens and there may be a chance to propagate some of the plants in the Wallington Garden.

The workshop, which runs from 1pm to 4pm, costs £10, including coffee.

Booking is essential, however, no prior notice is needed to attend a Meet the Curator event next Friday.

Visitors can chat to Andrew McLean to find out about the work that goes on behind the scenes at Wallington and discover stories about some of the wonderful objects in its collection.

The free session takes place from 1pm to 3.30pm.
