Clayfield Copse, Caversham
Saturday, 17th June 2017
14:00 - 17:00

A free family event in celebration of Clayfield's oak trees.


"With one of the Clayfield Copse oaks as its focal point, this is a celebration and a reminder of our relationship with the natural world through music, poetry, stories and myths. Everyone is invited to respond either in words or pictures by way of a 'message tree'. There will be information about the trees together with walks and talks, as well as tree related crafts for all. Children are welcome and encouraged to join in the activities and experience the peace this beautiful tree can bring."

Please bring a picnic and enjoy.
