Events

Throughout the year we organise a variety of events including guided walks, workshops and group activities. Whilst we endeavour to run our events as planned, we occasionally have to cancel or rearrange them.

Booking maybe required for our events so we can keep the numbers to manageable levels. You can always contact us beforehand or check our facebook page for the latest information.
