Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th
Join us for a happy weekend in the country and help us to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of Kempley Daffodil Weekend.
In 1975 four Kempley ladies decided to organise teas on a specific weekend, to coincide with the native daffodils being in bloom, to raise money for the local church. Later the name was changed to Kempley Daffodil Weekend, and the event has been very successful.
The weekend is organised under the auspices of Kempley PCC by a committee of local people each of whom organise different aspects of the event.
Come and see the wonderful displays of wild daffodils in the local woods and fields (some of which are designated SSSIs).
Organised walks leave the Village Hall at
10.00 am Walk 1: 5 - 6 miles across daffodil meadows to St Mary's church, then to Greg's Pit Cider (for cider tasting) returning via Awnell's Farm (Countryside Restoration Trust) to Kempley
10.30 am Walk 2: 5 - 6 miles across Daffodil Woodlands and Meadows, Dymock Woods and Kempley Village
For Walks 1 & 2 we recommend to take a packed lunch or to have lunch in the Village Hall on return.
10:45 a.m. Secret Valley Walk: 5 miles (optional shortcut to 3 miles) covering daffodil woodlands and meadows
2:00 p.m. Local History Walk & Talk, about 1 mile
For all walks we recommend stout walking shoes or boots, together with appropriate clothing. Dogs are welcome on all walks but must be kept on a lead.
Free Daff-and-Ride minibus travels around key sites leaving the Hall at approx. 45-minute intervals.
Maps of walks are available to purchase at St Mary's Church and at Kempley Village Hall. Information on the walks can be found at: www.kempleytardis.org.uk/daffodil-walks/
