If you’re looking for something to do over the Easter Holidays, come along and enjoy your local green spaces at the Boro Becks family events on Middle Beck and Spencer Beck.

Flower Power Wednesday, April 13 10am-3pm

Join our Becks Ranger and Wildflower Ark for a free family task day down on Spencer Beck. Do your bit to brighten up the beck by planting wild flowers and make a wildflower picture to take home. This is a free drop-in session, no need to book. Call in at the Thorntree Park Pavilion - refreshments will be available.

Tracks and Trails Tuesday, April 19 10am-3pm

Go wild this Easter down Middle Beck! Try your hand at casting your own wild animal track, make an animal mask and follow the self-led trail up Middle Beck to solve the puzzle and claim your edible prize. This is a free drop-in session, no need to book – just call in at the Charlbury Road Community Centre. Refreshments will be available.

Spring is the perfect time

Community Outreach Officer Chris Corbett said: “Spring is the perfect time to get out and about along the becks and learn about the animals and plants that live there and how we can make the becks even more attractive for wildlife and people.

“We’re so lucky having these right on our doorstep so come along to the free events and find out more.”

For more information about the walks, please ring the Boro Becks Team on 01642 515618 or email
