For our June 16th Muddy Church, we will meet at the western end of the Shapwick Heath nature reserve (that is, north of Shapwick, just before the canal). Please park sensibly, either in the lay-bys or along one side of the road, leaving plenty of room for tractors and heavy vehicles to pass by unimpeded.)

Please bear in mind that this is a nature reserve and there are a number of minor hazards, with the possibility of cuts and bruises. There are also ticks on the reserve, so although it is unlikely that your child will get bitten, please be vigilant in removing any ticks that are on your children. A full risk assessment is here.
