Adult Explorers - Outdoor Learning Group

Over 55's Hazeley_18.JPG

Join our team to rediscover old skills, learn new ones and meet like minded people.

This new outdoor learning group allows you to meet every other Tuesday to socialise, cook food and learn hands on skills in the outdoors.  Our activities are led by you, whether it be learning how to light a fire using seven different methods, whittling a spoon out of wood, or building a compostable toilet! The choice is yours and we have plenty of options on offer!

Reasons to attend:

  • Are you retired or semi-retirement and looking for a new hobby?
  • Do you want to discover new skills and meet new people?
  • Do you want to enhance your health and well-being?
  • Would you like to keep physically and mentally active whilst embracing the outdoors?

Each session costs £5 per head and will be held at Elfield Park Nature reserve.

    Hazeley Wood was planted by Milton Keynes Development Corporation in 1991. The long-term aim was to create a mature oak woodland for the new city. After many years of being a field of trees Hazeley is finally beginning to look and feel like a woodland. But there is still a long way to go: the wood will not finally reach maturity until 2141.

    There are no facilities in the wood. The nearest shops are at Grange Farm, about ten minutes’ walk away, or Shenley Church End local centre or the Westcroft Centre, both of which are a few minutes' drive away.
