If you fancy a day out somewhere completely different to Heartwood Forest, why not visit Tring Park for the Family Festival? Tring Park is just behind the Natural History Museum in Tring, and shares a car park with the museum. It’s a stunning site, managed by the Woodland Trust, with open, rolling grassland (with grazing cows) and beautiful woodland walks too.

The work on the car park and entrance track at Heartwood Forest is complete and the car park is now open again.

There is some tidying up to be done by the workforce but this will not affect general use and will be done while the car park is open.

Opening times are currently 8am to 5pm.

Whether you enjoy regular yoga classes or you are a complete beginner, why not come along and give it a go? It’s a wonderful way to relax in beautiful surroundings.

Bluebells are starting to appear at Heartwood, but don’t rush up there yet!

I was there yesterday and there are definitely plenty of bluebell plants, but only a few are flowering at the moment. It all looks very promising, though.

If you look carefully you will spot the occasional one or two plants in flower, but they are few and far between.

If you do go into the woods, please stick to the existing paths. There are plenty of them and it is really sad to see bluebells being crushed under foot. Please also remember to encourage children to respect the flowers and not to pick them. That way we can all enjoy them for even longer.

Watch this space for updates!
