Lots To Do At Hollingworth Lake

January 17, 2013

Hollingworth LakeHollingworth Lake offers a wonderful opportunity for Heywood folk to enjoy the outdoors this winter.

There’s something for everyone, with woodland treks, miniature garden making and bracing walks all on offer. All no more than 15 minutes from Heywood.

This Saturday (19) visitors can join rangers for a nature walk before making their own work of art between 2 and 4pm.

There’s more fun in February as the rangers celebrate Rochdale’s Community Woodland Month with a lesson on woodland management techniques on Saturday 2 at 1pm. A woodland based walk up to Lydgate Valley and Summit Quarry will follow on 23 February at 10.30am.

A gardening craft stall on Sunday 3 March will give creative types the chance to make miniature gardens and grass seed heads between 1 and 3pm while the Go Wild Bursting into Leaf event on Saturday 16 March will see visitors looking for signs of spring with the rangers and sowing some wildflower seeds for later in the year.

If you feel like helping the ranger service keep the countryside looking beautiful join them on a community litter pick around the lake on Sunday 17 March.

Councillor Martin Burke, Cabinet Member for Environmental and Operational Services at Rochdale Borough Council, said: “There’s no better way to enjoy Hollingworth Lake than under the guidance of our expert rangers, who can really unlock its secrets and give people a new insight into one of our residents’ favourite places.

“Our ranger led activities provide a great family day out, with many events being free of charge or just £1 admission.”

All Hollingworth Lake events start at the Visitor Centre on Rakewood Road, Littleborough.
