Mucklestone Nurseries to host 2nd Sponsored Nature Trail, Bluebell and Wild Garlic Walk for children and local community in aid of Knighton Village Hall (29th April 2013)

Mucklestone Nurseries  to host 2nd Sponsored Nature Trail, Bluebell and Wild Garlic Walk for children and local community in aid of Knighton Village Hall

Mucklestone Nurseries and Business Centre, a new specialist plant nursery with adjoining affordable business units, are to host a Sponsored Nature Trail, Bluebell and Wild Garlic Walk for children and the local community on Sunday 5th May 2013 from 1.30pm to 4.00pm.

On the day, children will be issued with map including 20 easy questions relating to 20 items to be found - identified with information boards along the route. The completed questions sheets will be marked at the local church, St Mary’s Church Muckletone, where tea and refreshments will be served by the Ladies of Mucklestone WI and Friends of St Mary’s Church from 3pm-5.30pm. Children are free to sponsor their school PTA, their scout or brownie pack, or any other such charity of their choice.

Children should be sponsored before hand, at a rate per item/question correctly identified on route. Sponsorship forms are available to download from the website, prior to the walk http://www.botanyplants.co.uk/ or by emailing info@botanyplants.co.uk.

A suggested donation of £3.00 per head for adults will be collected for the Knighton Village Hall Fund in memory of Nancy Bentham. Children and students are admitted for free.  Stewards along the route will be provided by volunteers from the Turner Hodgkiss Community Nature Reserve. 

Anthony Heath, Treasurer of Knighton Village Hall (and St Mary’s Church Mucklestone), said, ‘We are so pleased that William Friend is supporting Knighton Village Hall with his Bluebell and Wild Garlic Nature Trail on 5th May. We are currently appealing for support for vital building work to be carried out on the Hall. The fact that William is donating in memory of Nancy Bentham – who managed the village hall for years and who was a great friend of William’s Mother - is wonderful. We hope that the event goes well and that the local community will join William in raising much needed funds for the village hall.’

All Parking is at Mucklestone Nurseries car park. Entrance is 100 yards up Rock Lane (turn off Eccleshall Rd. by old post office /opposite the old schoolhouse). The Business Centre entrance via Cemetery Lane will be reserved for pedestrians returning to tea at the Church.  Please do not use the Farmhouse entrance.

The adjoining Mucklestone Business Centre, also owned by William Friend, is a new site offering affordable business premises to local small businesses, charities and groups in an attractive and peaceful farmyard setting.
