The Roost
At Bright Meadows


The Roost At Bright Meadows!

We are delighted to announce that thanks to a collaboration with Bolton At Home we have taken over the disused space in  Breighmet to have our very own Little Bats Learning dedicated location!

What has been a long time disused space will now be put to good use – we have exciting plans which we can’t wait to bring to life and share with the local community so that even more families can benefit from the great outdoors.

"A long time ago before it was houses, it used to be an orchard. We're almost taking it back to what it used to be."

"We love coming outdoors with Little Bats Learning as its's fun, there's a lot of friendly people and also lots of nature to explore..."

Our Plans...

How we will develop The Roost...

Transforming this old council depot, with funding from XXX will allow Little Bats to help even more families - particularly those that may find a traditional woodland setting too daunting...

Phase One

Our first phase has focussed on clearing the site and making it a safe space for users. We have cleared a lot of rubbish from the site to make it accessible!

Phase Two

Tree Planting - We are already underway with planting new trees to stand for generations to come and give enjoyment to our local community.

Phase Three

Forest School Sessions will be taking place for local children and families to participate in inclusive outdoor activities for fun, learning, health and wellbeing .

Phase Four

We have plans for a shelter and so much more to create a true outdoor community space for local residents to embrace, enjoy and be part of something amazing...

With special thanks to....

The Roost At Bright Meadows would not be possible without the generosity of Bolton At Home for granting use of the land, and much needed funding from both the Greater Manchester Environment Fund and Bolton CVS. Without this sort of support, our work would not be possible – so from all at Little Bats – a big thank you!
