Get involved and join the in the fun! We have organised a not-to-be-missed family event in Bedgebury Forest on Saturday 16th May from 12 p.m. There will be something for all ages so check out the information below to make sure your family makes the most of the day. Dress up to impress as there will be newspaper coverage of the event.
PRE-SCHOOLER CHEEKY MONKEYS
For the 2 – 5 year olds there will be a Cheeky Monkey Tea Party in the Forest Shelter next to the playground. The best monkey costume wins a free Go Ape Junior Tree Top Experience birthday party for them and four friends (valid until they are old or tall enough). Cakes and juice will be served from 1 p.m. so come and play on the pirate ship, watch the Tree Top adventurers get going on both their courses and then take a seat for a monkey cup cake or a slice of banana loaf. Our trustees will be judging the costumes and the prize will be presented later that the afternoon.
JUNIOR TREE TOP ADVENTURERS
For those that are 5 or 6 years old up (and one metre high) there are limited free spaces (usually £18) to do the Junior Tree Top Experience – fancy dress and sponsorship essential. No flowing wigs, tails, capes or opened toed footwear allowed we’re afraid, for obvious health and safety reasons, but do be creative and inventive and raise as much money as you can by creating your Goudhurst Village Pre-school affiliated Justgiving page (please click on link) to share online – by email and on Facebook – and by downloading this Sponsor Form (please click on link) for face-to-face fundraising.
