There’s no point looking for fairies at the end of the garden – because they have all flown to the forest!
The Forestry Commission is staging its annual Fairy Fayre in Sherwood Pines Forest Park, near Clipstone, Notts, on 1 June.
Children will be able to enjoy a magically day making peg doll fairies and wands and go in search of a dragon in the woods.
The drop-in event runs between 12 noon and 3pm and is suitable for children aged over three years old, who must be accompanied by an adult. Meet at the large forest classroom, near the visitor centre. There is a small charge for each activity.
