Gruffalo Hunt in the Woods

Golden sunshine, autumn leaves and smiles all round

Article text 1

Something very exciting happened this half-term in Plantation Wood. Rumours abounded that a real live Gruffalo had been spotted! So 97 people headed off on A Gruffalo Hunt. There were lots of brave little brown mice (who knew ALL the words) as well as parents, grandparents and older siblings, cousins and friends who fancied adventuring in the wood. Fox, Owl and Snake were there to help re-enact the whole story (by Julia Donaldson and Axel Schaefler). This event was part of regular seasonal events delivered by the Friends of Plantation Wood, a Woodland Trust group I set up in 2011 and still going strong. More details are available on Twitter @PlantationWood and Facebook Friends of Plantation Wood.
