Spring update at Elton Mazes

The Mazes will not be open until the school summer holidays, mid July. However we are busy now trimming the willows in the Activity Maze, to make the paths passable but still interesting and enclosed.

The maize field will soon be ploughed and planted with maize so the Maize Maze will be ready for exploring in the summer.
