KWIC FAIRY TRAIL and PETER RABBIT TRAIL

ALL WEEK LONG!!!!

Enjoy our community effort. Colourful and calming. Bring a picnic and tell Grandad he’ll need his flask! Spot the characters of the Peter Rabbit stories and name them.

Then move on to our fairy trail and see if you can set eyes on the Morgan’s Wood fairies.

Free to attend. An intergenerational activity with plenty to ignite the imagination.

The Peter Rabbit trail is buggy and wheelchair friendly.

The Fairy Trail can be viewed from the pathway but the trail route is off of the path which may not be as easy for a wheelchair.
