Highgate Woods was turned into a woodland adventure during Sunday morning.Advertisement
Run by Tom and Sabina Gerrard they are creating The Woodland School Limited.
They held at open day at Highgate Wood, off Garstang Road, Fulwood, with activities for children to try.
With a slackline, hammock, mud painting and fairy wings making there was plenty to keep little ones entertained.
The Woodland School is launching with twice-weekly sessions at the woods for ages one to six, called the Minis.
A Rangers group takes place for slightly older children too.
More than 40 people turned out for the open day.
Tom has extensive experience running Scout groups and has decided to put his skills to use in running sessions for youngsters in the woods.
Sabina said: “The Woodland School would like to thank all the families that came to the launch event today.
“We were overwhelmed by the turn out and the support shown by the local families in Preston. We hope to see you all soon at future Woodland Explorer sessions.”
