Bluebell Walk @ Benburb Priory
The Bluebell walk is a step towards encouraging young people in particular to look closely at their own environment, assessing how it is used and how it could be improved.
This will help to create fun and interesting stories of life in the village providing social opportunities for people of all ages to meet up time as the seasons and vibrant colours evolve.
Come along to one of our community days where you can take part in an interactive learning walk, develop new skills and experiences, grow wild and enjoy the fun.
