Event description


Nature Links is delighted to invite you and your Mini Adventurers to join us at our 'Closing (just for now) Parties,' at our beloved site in Crane Park. Please book a spot and pop down to say hi. We'd LOVE to see you and your little ones to share a cup of a tea and a morning outside together.

Our parties will follow the same format as our Family Forest School sessions. Heidi will be bringing some of our favourite kit, craft materials, bubbles, balloons, tea, coffee and biscuits to celebrate all of the wonderful times we've had together over the last few years and the ones we will enjoy in the future.

(Please note: sessions will be a little more child led than usual and kit will vary depending on how much Heidi can carry on the day!)

Who is welcome?

We will start with space for 12 families and take it from there. If we end up with a waiting list we will extend the guest list!

We welcome all families that have visited us recently, in the past or never at all. Children will need to be supervised by you at all times. For this reason we do not suggest you bring any more than a total of two children and a baby per adult.

£5 per family payable on arrival.

What should we wear?

There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes! We go outside whatever the weather and the best way to prepare for your adventure is by dressing yourself and your child appropriately.

You will need:

  • Long sleeved tops and trousers - long layers protect from scratches and insects

  • Waterproof tops and bottoms in case of rain - We are able to provide waterproof trousers for children. Please make sure you both have waterproof coats.

  • Jumper or fleece

  • Sturdy shoes, boots or wellies - We will be outside on uneven ground. We like to climb and explore and you and your child must be able to do this safely in your footwear.

  • Hat

  • Scarf

  • Gloves

  • If it is raining you might will need an extra layer


Where do we meet?

We meet in Crane Park, on the path at the entrance off Basden Grove. The path into the park is in-between numbers 13 and 14. (We will send you a photo and map in your registration pack)

How do I get there?


Ten minute walk from Whitton Corner Health Centre. From the Centre walk down to the Hospital Bridge Roundabout. Turn right and walk down the Great Chertsey Road. Walk past the black railings, over the bridge keeping the white wall to your right. The entrance to the park is on your right. Follow the yellow path. We meet on the path just next to the playground.


H25 – Churchfields Avenue bus stop (the last and first stop) is just over the road.

H22, 110 and 481 - 15 minutes walk away on Hospital Bridge Road at the Heathfield Library and Whitton Corner Health and Social Care Centre stops.


Whitton – from the station hop on the H22 towards Richmond and jump off at Whitton Corner Health and Social Care Centre.

Feltham - H25 to Churchfields Avenue


The closest postcode for our meeting point is TW13 5QW.

Basden Grove is a very small residential street, please do not park on this road. We suggest parking on Watermill Road or Churchfields Avenue. There are lots of free parking spaces, the road is wider and we will keep the neighbours happy! Please park considerately. We will sned you a map of where you can park in your registration pack.

What will happen if it is raining/snowing?

I am planning to adventure in all weathers unless there are extremely high winds or the temperature drops below zero. However, if I feel I need to cancel a session I will send you an email and a text to the details you provide at registration.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

You can email Heidi .

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

No. We have a waiting list so if you cannot attend please let us know ASAP so that we can invite another family to attend.
