Friends of the forest led a day of activities today (Sunday) as part of Forest Discover Day, a nationwide initiative to encourage people to learn more about their woodland.

These included a ‘find the archaeology’ game, which attracted a number of youngsters, an animals footprints quiz, forest quiz, displays about deer and the production of timber, guided walks and opportunities to discover more about the wildlife of Thetford Forest.

At Lynford Arboretum, in Mundford, there was a children’s dinosaur tree trail and a ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ talk to find out why the trees there are so special.

Chair of the Friends of Thetford Forest, Anne Mason, said the day had proved popular with families.

“We’ve had people saying that they’ve been to Thetford Forest so many times but that they didn’t know there were all these different places to go and things to do,” she said.

“I don’t think people realise the complexities of the forest and the fact it’s timber and archaeology and recreation.”
