Mushrooms at Holbrook Walk

Friends of Heathlands Park have organised a fungi-find event starting in Heathlands Park on 30th October 2012 10am (the Tuesday of the half term holiday if you have school children).  The event will be led by local expert Michael Senkans.  There are many types of fungus both in Heathlands Park, down the hill in the woodland (to the east) and towards the Holbrook Marshes in this, one of the most bio-diverse areas of Sheffield.  Find out what you can and cannot eat – or just come along for the walk, which we anticipate will take roughly a couple of hours.  Please make sure you wear some waterproof boots/shoes  though, as it can get muddy once we are out of the park!  Again, this is a free event arranged by the Friends of Heathlands Park and provided by Sheffield City Council in conjunction with the Sheffield Landscape Trust.

Meet at Heathlands Park at the black railings at the end of Oxclose Park Way, S20 8GS.

Annual Beighton Orchard Apple Day

On Saturday 13th October 2012 10.30am to 2.00pm, there is the annual Beighton Orchard Apple Day where you can pick your own apples to eat or have them crushed to make your very own apple juice! Bring a carrier bag with you and you can take some home or just come to learn about our local varieties, many of which are featured in the orchard (most of which have also been replicated in the Heathlands Park Orchard – some literally as two teams of FOHP members took part in grafting and budding events at Beighton and we used their nursery plot before transplanting them into Heathlands). The event is free as is the parking on Robin Lane (just by the church).

Meet at Beighton Orchard – located off Robin Lane near the Methodist Chapel.  Walk down the public footpath to the metal gates on the left (Beighton Orchard entrance).
