The Rangers have a lot of activities planned for the half-term holiday period - please do look at the previous post about the Stag and Doe competition as well! Here is a list of what will be happening:
Family activities coming up at Priory Park this February half term:
Nest Box Building
Wednesday 19 February
It’s National Nest Box Week and we will once again be offering the opportunity to build and decorate your own bird box to take home and hang in your garden. Bird box kits are limited so please book your place on 01384-812474, there are just a few places left so call now!
Thursday 20 February
A fun session of themed crafts centered around the times when Monks lived in the Priory. Suitable for all ages. No need to book, just turn up.
Friday 21 February
Get crafty with items of junk that would normally just be thrown away. If you have any clean food containers (such as cereal boxes or egg boxes) please bring them along. No need to book, just turn up.
All activities meet at the pavilion (near the tennis courts). Priory Road, Dudley DY1 4EU
Children aged 15 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult for all of our activities.
For more information contact Priory Park Rangers – 01384-812474
FoPP is also planning some other activities for later in the year - watch this space for an update when we have finalised the dates and other details!
Looking for other things to do during half-term?
Nothing to do with Priory Park, but personally
can I suggest some other locations nearby you might find worth a visit during this half-term holiday, weather permitting (both charge for entry though):
1. The Black Country Living Museum
- a great place to visit, and although opening hours are reduced during the first months of the year, I'm assured it will be open every day during half term (unless weather conditions make it unsafe).
2. Dudley Zoo and Castle
- it is not the best time of year to visit, as the animals don't like the bad weather either! But there are a lot of new animals to see, and lots of superb new signs on the enclosures - fabulous photos!
Oh, and don't forget the Canal Trust
- you will be underground most of the time, so rain isn't a problem (though of course if the water has frozen, the boats can't get out!).
