Lichfield always has something going on during the school holidays and October Half Term is no different:
There is something happening daily at Beacon Park during the half term holiday starting with the Halloween Puzzle Trail available from the Ranger Station. For only £1, families can follow the colourful trail around the historic park to solve clues and claim a small prize!!
The fun continues with a Feed the Birds drop-in workshop in the Discovery Hub on Saturday 25 October, to create a bird feeder out of pine cones and seeds to help the birds survive the winter.
