These are a few ofour favourite March things

Spring has sprung! The daffodils are peeping through and the lambing days are afoot. Spring is the time to get busy, celebrate new beginnings and start to plan what easter eggs you can buy your little ones so that you can stuff your face with them beforehand. You can’t kid a kidder!

Lye Valley Nature Reserve

The frogs will start to arrive at Lye Valley in March and it is a spectacular sight! You will see them way before you see them. Remember not to touch or remove them. 

Sutton Courtenay Community Playground

It feels so long ago that we were tipped off about this community playground that had been given a huge refurb. We’ve been so many times and can confirm that it is still awesome!
