More than 100 people enjoyed a day out at Keeds Wood on Saturday.

Families could cook dough balls on an open fire and hunt for treasure, as well as build a den and play with spinners and weavers at the event in Long Ashton.

Children could also hunt for bugs, make a hedge and play guitars and tuck into a picnic.

The event was organised by Friends of Keeds Wood, which said it hopes to be able to hold another day out next year.

Event spokesman, Ian Webb, said: "The picnic went extremely well.

"More than 100 people attended, which is more than we expected.

"Children were carrying things around all day, it was delightful to watch and the day was very successful."

In May 2016, owners of the woodland invited people to get involved to make it a community resource.

The Keeds Wood group works alongside Avon Wildlife Trust to improve the forest in Long Ashton.
