Together for Short Lives: Meet the Abbott family

In June we announced that Together for Short Lives was to be our new charity partner for the next two years. This month we have introduced you to the Abbott family, a family who have shared their experience of the support they have received from Together for Short Lives and their local hospice with us.

 

Bring Nutmeg to life at our magical sculptures

Last month we introduced you to the star of Winter Wonderland, Nutmeg the baby reindeer. Our magical sculptures at each Village really are showstoppers as they bring Nutmeg to life and add him to your family photo. Find out where our sculptures are at each Village and how to use them, to ensure you don’t miss your chance to take a selfie with baby Nutmeg.

 

Ultimate Hot Chocolate

As the dark, winter nights are quickly approaching, we think this ultimate hot chocolate recipe is the perfect accompaniment for a cosy night in, snuggled on the sofa. So whether it’s a weekday or weekend, we’re all in favour of making this mouthwatering, ultimate hot chocolate recipe… not forgetting the marshmallow fudge stirrers! Yes please!

 

I spy with my little eye something beginning with…H!

Over the past few months, Peanut the hedgehog has certainly stolen the spotlight at Woburn Forest and it seems some of her friends are after her crown. Our maintenance team recently found this baby hedgehog out wandering along the road. As hedgehogs are nocturnal and should be tucked away during the day, the little hedgehog was safely cared for by our conservation team until Shepreth Hedgehog Hospital came to collect him, where he will be cared for over the winter.

Our Senior Conservation Ranger Lucie, said “it’s fantastic to know hedgehogs are breeding on Village. If you see a hedgehog out during the day or very small babies, please leave them where they are, if it is safe to do so and call the grounds team so we can check if they require any help.”

 

Coming soon…

Next month we have a bumper edition with Winter Wonderland being the topic of conversation here at Center Parcs HQ. With only five days to go till the launch of Winter Wonderland, we’ve got plenty of exciting things coming your way, including updates on our favourite little reindeer, Nutmeg.
