On 11 June, Severn Valley Country Park will be holding the Severn Valley Trail Run, a 5k and 10k off-road run through hills and woodlands. This year’s event is sponsored by four local companies, Stinky-Ink, Doolittle and Dalley, Integrated Grounds Maintenance and Enville Ales. Last year the 10k race sold out, with runners travelling from as far afield as South Wales to tackle the beautiful course. Online entry is available at stuweb.co.uk
On 17 June, the park will host a Family Wildlife Day focused on the incredible sight of the wildflower meadow in full bloom. There will be mini-beast hunting, pond-dipping, wild food walks, owls on display, scything workshops and craft stalls. Enville Ales are sponsoring the hay-bale throwing contest, with the winner receiving a voucher for a free nine-pint tin of ale. In the evening, local folk band Whalebone and poet Kate Innes will perform a mixture of music and poetry at the Visitor Centre.
