The Christmas Craft Fair is on Saturday 25 November and will this year be held at Parklands Leisure Centre which is on the same site as Brocks Hill. In fact you would pass the Leisure Centre driving up to the car park so call in. There is more space this year so more stalls and more activities for you and your family to choose from! See the events page for full details.

The centre is now operating winter hours with both centre and cafe opening at 10.00 a.m. and closing at 4.00 p.m.

For information on how we are managing the various habitats within the Country Park and encouraging wildlife, please visit the Country Park page. There will be some thinning work carried out over the next few months in the woodlands.

For other information about Brocks Hill please see the Latest Council News. For details of Lead Volunteer opportunities, please see the jobs section.

Brocks Hill Country Park and Centre is the perfect place for all ages to bring learning to life connecting wildlife and people. It offers leisure, conservation and outdoor learning experiences with enjoyment and inspiration at their heart. The Park and Centre will support people to discover more about wildlife and nature, to reconnect them with the outdoors and to encourage them to lead healthier and more sustainable lifestyles.

The Centre offers a popular, year round programme of learning opportunities taught by staff, outsourced tutors and by committed and knowledgeable volunteers. They will tantalise and inspire you with their knowledge in many areas of Natural History and we hope this will encourage you to develop your own interests further.

Our school holiday activities offer fun learning activities for all ages through craft, trails, outdoor hands on experiences and much more. Throughout the year, there are lots of exciting opportunities to explore and discover the Country Park for free.

For a more structured learning programme, we currently offer a full education programme for schools. We also have a programme of talks, tours and discovery sessions for community groups which can be adapted to suit all ages and abilities.
