Blow away the Halloween cobwebs with a Riddlesdown walk

If you have run out things to do in your job as volunteer entertainments officer (unpaid) to your children during half-term, there’s a solution to run off some of their spare energy this Friday morning.

And it’s all free.

With a lot of recent windy weather there will be plenty of windfall to discover on a warden-led scavenger hunt over the beautiful downland fields between Riddlesdown and Whyteleafe.

The 90-minute walk is for adult-accompanied children.

The meet up with the warden is at 11am in Dunmail Drive. The 412 bus can be taken from Purley to Mitchley Avenue near Dunmail Drive.
