The Dean Heritage Centre is delighted to announce the opening of its brand new Monster Trail being launched at October half term, just in time for Halloween. Visitors will also be able to take part in ghoulish indoor trails and craft activities as the centre gets spooky for half term.
Thanks to funding from the New Grove Trust and sponsorship from VW Dealers; Apex Architecture; GlaxoSmithKline and Fairfield Maybe, the Centre has been able to install a new permanent walking trail, featuring six monster size wooden creatures, set across the five acre woodland site in Soudley, Forest of Dean.
The creatures have been created by onsite chainsaw carver, Clayton Ryder, with the help of centre volunteers. Centre Manager, Nathalie Hall said: “We are extremely grateful to the New Grove Trust and the local businesses that have kindly supported our Monster Trail as without them it would not have been possible. We are still looking for sponsors in order to light the trail so that next year we can go bigger and better and open a floodlit evening trail next Halloween.”
Call the Centre for more details and get down there, it sounds a lot of fun !.
