PORTHKERRY Country Park will host a Heritage Lottery Fund subsidised event filled with outdoor activities.

On February 18, the woodlands of Millwood at the Vale country park will welcome Shire horses and tree-felling demonstrations plus other interactive demonstrations.

Visitors to the park will be able to make a bird table, watch, and take part in willow-weaving, take part in an axe and sawing workshop, and get stuck into an array of bush craft activities.

The Big Fell event is free, with visitors being advised to park at the main car park, or walk to the Cwm Ciddi Sawmill and Millwood area of the park. Visitors are advised to wear wellies, as the area is likely to be muddy.

Porthkerry Country Park boasts 220 acres of woods and meadowland in a sheltered valley, which leads on to a pebble beach. The park has a number of nature trails, picnic sites, a cafe, a play area, barbecue areas and mini golf course.
