A final community event will take place at Well Woods in Ferry Fryston as part of a scheme to encourage more people to use local woodlands.

The event, on Saturday October 12 from 11am to 3pm, has been organised by Castleford Heritage Trust as the finale to its Fryston Woods Access and Improvement Project.

It will feature foraging for wild fruit, making bird feeders, bark rubbing and other crafts and games, along with representatives from WDH, Friends of Fryston Woods and the RSPCA as well as other community organisations will be present.

There will also be the unveiling of a new archway built by local artist Steve Williamson and commissioned by the trust.

Paul Rogers, woodland access ranger, said: “It has been a great three years, with lots of people taking part in events and appreciating the woodland. It is great to see so many people getting involved, and really pleasing to see groups such as Friends of Fryston Woods ensuring the continuation of such events.”
