We are excited to announce the date for our Forest Family Fun Day! Join us on 2nd September at the Millennium Country Park for our biggest fundraising event of the year.

Our team here at the Forest of Marston Vale HQ are working hard behind the scenes to organise our biggest and best event to date. Our annual Forest Family Fun Day has something for the whole family and will be jammed packed with rides, activities, animal encounters, a grand raffle, nature trail and more. There will also be appearances from children’s favourites, Bluey and Bingo, at intervals throughout the day! Forest Family Fun Day is a great opportunity for us to bring the local community together for a fantastic family day out, and to raise money to continue the work we do, at the same time.

We welcome a wide range of stall holders from local businesses, so a variety of food, drink, gifts, and crafts will be available on the day. We are always on the lookout for exciting new stall holders. If you’re interested in attending our Forest Family Fun Day as a stall holder, then please email Robina at [email protected] to register your interest.

Have fun and help grow the Forest!

The Forest of Marston Vale is a charitable trust, and we have planted over 2 million trees in the 61 square miles that makes up the Forest of Marston Vale and have taken tree coverage in the area from 3.6% to over 15% in under 30 years. We create and maintain woodlands for our local communities to enjoy and benefit from, as well as the wildlife within them.

From benefiting your wellbeing, to transforming your community, and providing homes for wildlife, trees give us so much. Forests need our help now more than ever before, to continue to be there for us, for wildlife, and to help tackle the climate emergency.

When you join us for our Forest Family Fun Day you can feel good in the knowledge that you are not only creating memories with loved ones, but you are contributing towards our work and improving your local community. Funds raised from Forest Family Fun Day will be used to plant more trees, and care for and protect our current community woodlands for all to enjoy.
