Festive fun in the forest

Have your say

Festive fun was on the agenda when residents joined countryside rangers to get creative ahead of the Christmas celebrations.

Burncross Action Team, countryside rangers and Activity Sheffield organised a wreath-making session in Foxfield Spring Wood.

The woods were transformed with lights and marquees, and High Green Brass band, whose members are aged from 12 to 69, entertained with a selection of Christmas carols.

Rangers Tom Broadhead and Richard Saunders demonstrated how to create the wreaths, made of willow rings and decorated with conifer, holly and ribbons.

A spokeswoman said: “The event was well attended by over 40 children and adults, who took their hand made wreaths home.”
