Severn Valley Country park

Shropshire Council countryside rangers at Severn Valley Country Park are holding a Christmas wreath-making session on Wednesday 16 December 2015.

During the winter months, the park has a wealth of natural items including ivy, cones and berries which are perfect to adorn a festive wreath.

The event begins with a short walk around the site with our ranger to collect these items, as well as the willow twigs needed to create the base of the wreath. On returning to the centre, help will be on hand to assemble the wreaths, and additional embellishments such as brightly-coloured bows and orange segments will be available to ensure each wreath is unique.

Susie Comaish, visitor centre manager, said:

“We always know Christmas is just around the corner when we hold our wreath-making sessions. Each wreath is drawn together from the wide variety of items found on the park, and our visitors always produce something special to hang on their front door.”

Cost is £5 per wreath. Booking is essential, as places are limited. Our morning session at 10am -12pm midday is fully booked, but some places remain for the 1pm-3pm afternoon session. The meeting point for this event is the visitor centre and teashop. Please wear suitable footwear for the walk around the park.
