Joydens Wood Revisited by Philpott Beavers
On Saturday 30th September 2017 Philpott Beavers paid a return visit to the woods at Joydens Wood for an afternoon of fun after a fifteen month break. The intention being to see the woods in the Autumn months as opposed to the summer months.
We all had two and a half hours of fun, mini beast hunting, climbing trees, bark rubbing and finding chestnuts, acorns and fungi. The large empty bomb crater was ideal for running down one side and then back up the other. When the Beavers tired of this they collected logs of dead wood to make a ‘Beaver Lodge’ in the hole.
Half way round the circular walk through the woods we stopped for drinks and cakes and the inevitable kick about with a football.
Luckily for us the weather was kind which helped make the day most enjoyable.
The only downside to the day was the absence this time of the carved statues that had delighted us all on our last visit. All except the aeroplane had completely gone which was a real shame.
