A West Midlands outdoor education centre is preparing for a family day of nature and fun.

Geoff and Jenny Williams with their grandaughter Olivia Williams, 7, go on a treasure hunt at Kingswood Trust

Kingswood Trust in Albrighton, near Wolverhampton, gives young people and families access to woodland and natural habitats, pond areas, climbing trees, adventure ropes, forest school base camps and gardening areas.

It has begun to organise events on its nine-acre estate after months of closure due to coronavirus lockdown restrictions and the Family Walking Treasure Hunt is the latest event to take place.

Rachel Wells, head teacher and charity manager, spoke about the event and what the families taking part could expect from it.

She said: "It's an opportunity to get children and families back outdoors after such a difficult time for everybody with Covid-19.

"Our mission is to connect children, families and the wider community to nature to help improve their health and wellbeing, so this event will provide a high quality facility for this.

"It will allow them to go out and get some much-needed fresh air and be able to enjoy themselves, while also being able to stay socially distanced."

The treasure hunt will take place on Tuesday, August 18, running from 10am to 1pm, with a cost of £12.50 per car for a family of up to five and £2.50 for each additional person.

The regular calendar of events had had to be stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Rachel said the Queen's Award-winning charity had been able to adapt to new circumstances and get activities back up and running.


She said: "Our volunteers have worked really hard to get the site ready and it looks absolutely spectacular at the moment, so I am very proud of the work we have done in difficult times.

"If you are worried about going out or the safety of your family, we can promise you that you will have all the space you need to feel safe and have a good time.

"We try to put on a programme everyone can enjoy and I think this treasure hunt will meet the needs of the whole family."
