IF you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of plenty of activities!

Youngsters flocked to Doncaster’s Sandall Beat Wood when bosses ran a programme of fun-filled events to help develop children’s interests in nature and the woodlands.

Dozens took part in the activities both inside the visitor centre and outside in the woods.

Sessions included arts and crafts which gave children the chance to get the paints out and to get creative with nature by using leaves and cones to create their own unique pictures.

Caitlin Bennett, aged 10, was among those at the event. She used leaves to create a picture of a bird.

Sandall Beat Community Environment Centre is based in 157 acres of woods and is a nature reserve and an area of special scientific interest.

Doncaster Council says it one of the most significant areas of public green space in the borough.
