YOUNGSTERS had a chance to discover the secret treasures of Bradfield Woods when they took part in a family event.

Organised by Judith Metcalfe, the wood’s newly appointed education officer, children were able to take part in craft activities including leaf printing and enjoy outdoor fun with a mud faces scavenger hunt finding the mud faces placed on the trees. They could also take part in a nature murder mystery trail.

The woods, which are owned and managed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust, had 150 visitors on the day and the event heralds several more being planned by Judith who has a two year placement at the woodland funded by Heritage Lottery.

Bradfield Woods is one of the few remaining ancient woodlands and is managed using traditional methods.

Judith said: “The turnout says how much people wanted to come out here and have a look around and we hope to open the woods to a broader range of visitors.”
