Well plans are well underway for our 11th annual gala day. Put the date in your diary, Sunday 5th July 2015 - 12-4pm.

We have live music lined up as usual, belly dancers, archery, English Combat, White Tigers kick boxing, dog agility, face painting, stalls, refreshments and the dog show again. All aiming for a fun day out for the whole family to enjoy.

As well as our usual stalls, we have some newcomers attending, there is Rob Roy from Long Eaton who is England's oldest and largest wooden toy shop - The company has made and sold wooden toys for over 60 years. Robin will be demonstrating how he makes some of the toys.

We have face painting by Jay Thomas, delicious pies by Brockleby's from Asfordby in Leics, a speciality tea stall, Snail and Rabbit who have a shop in West Bridgford and also Chilli Fundamentals who do all sorts of things with chilli.

Jodie will be back again this year with her catering van doing donuts and pancakes as well as speciality coffees, we all missed her last year when she was missing due to her brother's badly timed wedding!!

The park ranger service have kindly said that this year they will do some guided walks through the woods for anyone interested.

We will also be doing our popular tombola where every ticket wins a prize.

Come along and learn about the history of Colwick Woods and the area.

See you there!! - Liz
