This year for May Day we will be celebrating nettles!
Join us to celebrate the common stinging nettle - find out how they are beneficial to our health, about the wildlife they support, and how they can be used to make clothes, beer and more!
If you've got some clothes that you don't wear/need anymore then why not bring them along to the clothes swap event?...they might be just the thing that someone else is looking for, and you could find something new for yourself there too!
Come and get your hands dirty for this year's Big Dig!
Saturday 16th April
11 am - 4 pm
There will be some seasonal garden tasks to get involved with, as well as exploring the garden tours - taking a closer look at composting systems and natural beehives, and a chance to sow your own salad to take home.
Plus, food growing games and crafts for children, a raffle with garden produce and Big Dig prizes, garden herb teas... and cob ove pizzas, served from 1pm!
The results of the BMC Youth Climbing Series 2016 demonstrate how well our Castle Academy youth team are learning from each other and pushing themselves during training. Our athletes work together as a team during competitions, supporting each other and cheering loudly and enthusiastically for everyone taking part.
An equinox is an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth's equator passes through the center of the Sun, which occurs twice each year, around 20 March and 23 September. On an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. The name is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because at the equinox the night and day are nearly equally long.
