guys – just a quick note to congratulate yourselves.
Ive always loved the oakhill area and as a child i have very happy memories of days ‘lost in nature’ .
The work you guys have done in making the area accessible, whilst at the same time encouraging more wildlife, no easy task, is very impressive and a credit to the town.
What a fantastic day its been pond dipping with the kids in such a beautiful place that’s right on our door step first time to the ponds but definitely won’t be the last!
Had my first walk round Oakhill last night and I absolutely loved it, can’t wait to go back.. appreciate what’s on your doorstep.
Wow wow wow…. what a morning for snake spotting down the brick ponds.
Heard my first cuckoo of the year at Oakhill this morning.
Beautiful day at Oakhill today as everything is starting to grow again. Lovely and sunny this morning with a couple of light showers and May blossom just starting to bud.

Many thanks to those that attended a great day at Oakhill for the Willow Crafts Workshop. The weather thankfully stayed dry and some beautiful garden Obelisks were made.
Great day at Oakhill planting native bulbs and putting up one of the barn owl boxes. Spring is certainly springing with blossom bursting through and birds in full song.
Had a really good day today at Oakhill track and cast we took 6 kids two 1 year olds a 4 year old a 6 year old and 10 year old and a 14 year old,and they loved it we did 3 deer print casts before we had to go home cos the little ones was too cold but looking forward to the next event we can take them all too.
We were very impressed with your reserve and had a lovely couple of hours wandering around. You do an excellent job of looking after this little jewel of a reserve and we will definitely be returning before long.
