Here are three free events in Hamworthy to do with your kids this Easter holiday. And the best thing is, they’re all free!

Bioblitz and Wildflower Survey – Bluebell Woods

If you haven’t been down to this amazing community woodland yet, now’s your chance. Join our team of intrepid nature lovers as we get up close with the flowers, insects and other wildlife that lives in the woods.

Students from the local university will be cataloging the spring wildflowers as part of the woodland restoration efforts. Will you join them or will you bioblitz your own patch of woodland and find out what’s living on the woodland floor? The choice is yours! All equipment is provided, wear suitable clothes!

  • Tuesday, April 4th, 10.00-12.00
  • Bluebell woods, behind St Michael’s Church

Easter Egg Hunt – Hamworthy Park

This popular annual kids event is back – walk off some of that chocolate with a free Easter trail around Hamworthy Park! Find all the letters to get the password and rescue your egg from bunny’s nest!

A selection of Easter cakes and treats will be available to buy, and South Coast Adventures will be joining us with their climbing wall and caving rig.

  • Easter Sunday, 9th April, from 10.30
  • When the Eggs are gone, they’re gone
  • Hamworthy Park, near the Park Cafe

Forest School Stay and Play – Bluebell Woods

We are back in Bluebell woods for a Stay and Play Forest School session with the amazing Victoria from Dorset Rewilding. “Stay and play” means you, the parents/grandparents/carers, come and take part in the activities with your kids.

Explore the woods together as you move between the different activity stations – a selection of crafts, activities, birdwatching, treasure hunts, and more!

Activities are suitable for kids aged 5 to 11. But hey, it’s the woods so older and younger siblings are of course welcome to join in the fun with accompanying adults.

  • Wednesday, April 12th, 10.00-12.00
  • Bluebell woods, behind St Michael’s Church

This Forest school session has been funded by the wonderful people at Dorset Community Foundation. The events are run by volunteers from a number of local organisations including The Friends of Hamworthy Park, St Michael’s Church, and more!
