The first walk will set off at 10.15am then will run half-hourly: 11am, 11.30am, noon and 12.30pm.

There will stalls including tea & cake, wildflower plants from PlantWild and the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust gift stall.

WildPlaywill be running activities for children in the garden including planting fritillaries, making bee crafts, playing pollination games and pond dipping.
