There is always a campfire, tea and something to roast on the fire, and there are things to do for children and families. If you feel like just chilling it is a great place to do that, but if you feel like getting your hands dirty there are always planting, clearing and maintenance tasks to do. 

Just turn up!

Spring/Summer 2016 events at Galleywall

Our calendar of events for this year is now available. I hope to see you down the reserve sometime! Your first opportunity is this Sunday (20th March), from 2pm to 4pm, when we will be building a bike parking area from drainpipes, and if there's time, doing some repairs to the habitat wall. All hands welcome of any age or experience! Afterwards we'll reward ourselves with some lovely food cooked on our cob hearth. As ever, you're also welcome just to come along and enjoy the reserve if you prefer.

February Update

Our planning meeting went well and we have some great ideas for next
year. We've also got teachers from several schools visiting this week to
talk about taking class groups to the reserve, and a new volunteer
group, GoodGym, did lots of clearing-up work on Wednesday evening.

Our next open afternoon is Sunday 28th February, 2pm-4pm, at the
reserve. We're intending to finalise our event planning for this summer,
so if anyone has any ideas, please do come along (or if you can't make
it, email or message us with your thoughts or ideas). If you just want
to come and visit the reserve and have a cup of tea, that's fine too --
we'll have the fire going!

Self-guided school and group visits

Just a quick update to let you know that if you are (or know of) a local school or other group who wishes to visit us, we now have comprehensive self-guided visit information (including session and activity ideas) available online. We are really keen to see as many people as possible make use of the reserve!
