Getting Muddy and Wild with Transforming the Trent Valley

Thu 10 Oct 2019

Transforming the Trent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme are now running regular children's activities in Burton upon Trent, giving your child the chance to be a Wildchild!

Our regular Wildlings play group sessions held every Friday from 10am at Beans Covert near Branston are already proving to be very popular. No matter what the weather throws at us, we can be found having fun making mud pies or singing songs around the campfire. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn and explore in the great outdoors.



Kathryn Kavanagh, Wildchild Officer for Transforming the Trent Valley said “We had 16 Wildlings plus their parents/guardians attend last week’s session on a wonderful sunny autumn day. It was great to see the children exploring the woodland, learning and discovering more about the natural world. Those that had attended previous sessions went straight for their favourite activity with the mud kitchen and hammock being most popular this week. New faces were warmly welcomed and we even toasted marshmallows over an open fire… yummy!”

Kathryn also holds the Muddy Wildchild after school group at the Muddy Boots Gardening Project , behind Burton Mind on Branston Road. This group merges the joy of gardening with the love of nature, and participants have already had lots of fun discovering worms, birds and other creatures that live in the soil!
