THIS SUNDAY, Gloucester is Going Wild thanks to Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.

The Trust is hosting a FREE* event called ‘Go Wild’ this Sunday, 28th June 11am – 3pm at Robinswood Hill Country Park. There are loads of fun things to do for the whole family; climbing wall, archery, face painting, Gloucester Rugby Club agility course, circus skills workshop, tractor trailer rides and lots of local organisations too!

“We are expecting over 2,000 people,” says event organiser Nicky Simpson. “There is something for everyone at Go Wild. The event gives local people the opportunity to come and discover this wonderful place, it’s like the City’s back garden so come and explore the wildlife that lives here from mice to millipedes!”

2,000 people are expected to the Go Wild event this Sunday

The day is organised by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust in partnership with the Friends of Robinswood Hill, Gloucester City Council and Gloucester City Homes.

Gloucester Bike project will be available again to provide free bike servicing and maintenance, so why not cycle to the event rather than drive as parking is limited?

The Go Wild Event is part of the All Paths Lead to the Hill project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which aims to engage local people with the country park and in its first two years has seen an impressive 41% increase.

Also on Sunday, you can take part in GWT’s ‘Walk 4 Wildlife’ starting at St. Peter’s School at 10am, the 3.5 mile route takes in the Go Wild event as well as fantastic views from the top of the hill! Find out more and register your place at www.gloucestershirewildlifetrust.co.uk/walk-4-wildlife

*FREE entry to Robinswood Hill Country Park and the Go Wild event, however there will be small charges for a couple of activities.
