Our first evening of professional storytelling in the roundhouse was a great success, with visitors of all ages enthralled by the tales told. On 14 December and 18 January, Bryony Holden from Tinkerscuss will lead evenings of music and stories, performing tales of folklore and mythology. People of all ages are very welcome, as well as children from the age of 7 years. At these cosy sessions, the roundhouse fire will be lit and luxurious hot chocolate will be served.

Shy wildlife spotted

We’re lucky to have a trail camera at the nature reserve at Greystones which allows us to view some of our more secretive wildlife. In the past week, the camera has recorded otters, water voles and stoats, while we also have barn owls nesting here. At this time of year you’re very likely to see bullfinches, redwings, snipe, greylag geese and fieldfares.

Nature Tots
Our events for children will be continuing in the winter, encouraging them to love being outdoors and to learn about the wildlife around them. Our Nature Tots sessions for pre-school children are very popular, so do book your place in advance via our website gloucestershirewildlifetrust.co.uk. The next one takes place on 14 December.

Warm up in the café
The café is open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10am until 4pm and provides a peaceful retreat close to the village centre. We are serving freshly made snacks along with good-quality tea, coffee and hot chocolate. As well as a classic cream tea we also offer savoury afternoon teas: two scones, ham, local cheese and a drink for £5.

How to find us
We are at the end of Greystones Lane – there is a large sign on Station Road and a smaller sign on the lane, less than a 10 minute walk from the village centre. Please note that there is no public parking at Greystones, but if you are a Blue Badge holder do contact us on 01452 383333 and we will reserve a space for you.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
