Kids can go wild on a Wednesday

PARENTS and children looking for something ‘wild’ to do during the school holidays are invited to Lathkill Dale National Nature Reserve (NNR) near Bakewell for an exciting and varied series of Wild Wednesdays being run specially for families over the summer holiday.

The first of these events was yesterday (Wednesday, July 27) and the next one is on Wednesday, August 3, when families are invited to join Dipper the Dog on his wild day out. There will be the chance to follow trails, play games and make things, all based on the theme of looking after the countryside. Children are invited to bring their own toy dog or even a real one if they have one.

Dipper the Dog’s Wild Day Out will take place at the Over Haddon end of Lathkill Dale NNR with activities running from 11am to 4pm.
