The Friends of Highfield Country Park will be holding its AGM on Tuesday 18th October, 7-8pm at The Baptist Church, Elmsworth Avenue, Levenshulme, M19 3NS.
St Marys RC Primary School have been working with a group of 8 Year 5 children for this project, based in our local nature reserve, Highfield Country Park, alongside the Friends of Highfield Country Park.
The children have been making woodland crafts, and Martin Maudsley has told the group nature stories over the 4 seasons and been filmed there.
The whole project will be at The Whitworth Art Gallery for the day on Saturday 2nd July. The children will have stalls to tell visitors about the woodland crafts (foraging, whittling, coppicing, charcoal making, willow bark weaving, wreath making and clay), and Martin is telling stories.

Join the Friends of Highfield Country Park for their monthly walk around the park on Saturday 28th May!
They will be exploring different areas of the park and discovering the range of nature and wildlife that can be found. This will also be a chance to find out more about the Friends group and their future plans.
Everyone is welcome to join and the walk will be suitable for all ages and abilities. Meet by the Bowler Street entrance (postcode: M19 2UA) at 11am with the walk lasting until around 12.30pm.
