Volunteers and Friends – Invitation in the Woods!
Invitation from Volunteering for Wellbeing to our Volunteers and Friends. Please come along to spend time together in a beautiful woodland in the Wye Valley. Feel free to just drop in or stay the whole day. We will be enjoying and sharing some creative activities and snacks around the campfire. If you are able to let us know that you are coming along it would help. Hope to see you there! Please be aware that this is a natural woodland area and therefore will be uneven and difficult for some of us. However there is an open green area neighbouring the woodland that we will also be using, and of course friendly people around to provide assistance for those who would appreciate it. If you need more information about access then please email Miranda Thomason on firstname.lastname@example.org Directions The Wye Valley is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The woodland site we will be based at for the day is called Botany Bay. Gwent Scouts have kindly allowed us to use this site which is their county campsite. Drinking water and toilet facilities are available on site. Botany Bay is situated above the village of Tintern, approx. 8 miles from Chepstow and 9 miles from Monmouth. The postal address for the campsite is: Botany Bay Activity Centre Trelleck Road Tintern Chepstow NP16 6SN OS Grid SO 527024 Landranger 162 or Outdoor Leisure 14 (Wye Valley & Forest of Dean) From Monmouth, follow the A466 south, turn right on entering Tintern at the Wye Valley Hotel, signposted 'Catbrook 2'.
