Wild Woods

Wild Woods Day in Hockley Woods organised by Rochford Council

The annual Wild Woods Day for 2014 is taking place in Hockley Woods on Saturday 7 June 2014. This is run by the District Council and is always a great family day out. Events start at 11.00am and carry on throughout the day, finishing at 4.00pm.

As explained on the Council website:

Entry is free to this family-friendly event which has a focus on ‘green’ themes including recycling, sustainability and protecting the local environment. A pop-up market will offer local produce and upcycled and recycled products. Visitors can try out a pedal-powered smoothie maker and have a go at geocaching.

Other activities include a range of arts and sports including archery, axe throwing, mini golf, ‘make and take’ art workshops, woodlands crafts and live music.

Selected activities require a £2 ‘Wild Stamp’ which you can purchase on the day. Only one stamp is required per person and this is valid for a range of activities that can be accessed more than once throughout the event. Terms and Conditions apply.

Mark Aldous says “Wild Woods Day Family Fun Day took place on Saturday 1st June 2013 and was the 10th Anniversary of the event and the day regularly attracts over 2500 visitors”.
