The Woodland Trust is inviting children to Skipton Castle Woods for an afternoon of shelter building, fire making and wintry survival skills.

Aimed at children up to 13, the event will enable budding adventurers to get close to nature.

Site manager Alistair Nash said: “We’re looking forward to seeing lots of visitors on Saturday for our first public event of the year. It’s a great opportunity for families to enjoy the woods during the winter”

The free event will take place on Saturday at 1pm and participants should meet at Skipton Library.

Booking is essential and places can be booked by e-mailing or ring 01606 42667 (advance) or 07814 107732 (on the day).
