This year’s Secret Wood brightened up a rainy day in Raincliffe Woods with the event proving as popular as ever.

Families braved the mud and rain to enjoy displays including heavy horse logging, bird box making and traditional woodland crafts.

Deputy mayor Cllr Pat Marsburg attended the event as well as town crier Alan Booth MBE.

The Secret Wood was again organised by John Bradley, from Raincliffe Woods Community Enterprise, who said: “The event has gone very well and I’m really pleased.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has come down here today and made this year’s Secret Wood such a success.”

Ashley Tyson of Stepney Hill Farm, who catered for the event, said: “It’s been a fantastic day for getting all the community together, and there have been lots of families here which is really nice to see.”

Mr Bradley gave his thanks to the exhibitors, including Lilly Bee’s Creations, Yorkshire Hurdles, Friends of Dean Road and Manor Road Cemetery, Natural England, the Hawk and Owl Trust, Hill Holt Wood, Woodland Trust, Scarborough in Bloom, Stepney Hill Farm, Tales from the Heartland, dry stone walling, face painting and Woodland Connections.
