FOREST-BASED fun and learning gets up and running at its new Prudhoe venue this weekend.

Social enterprise company Stomping Grounds Forest School has taken over land at Dukes Hagg Wood, off Moor Road in Prudhoe, thanks to a successful fund-raising campaign to complete the sale on the site. It offers youth clubs, after school clubs and holiday clubs.

On Saturday there will be an open day to invite local people along to see what the forest school offers, between 12pm and 3pm.

Activities will include fire lighting, bushcraft and woodland art, and there will be food cooked on the fire.
