It’s the first ever national Get Outside Day on Sunday 30 September so why not do just that and come along to the Family Craft Day Wyre Estuary Country Park. Hosted by Wyre Council’s rangers the event is open from 11am-3pm and entry is free.

Get Outside Day, organised by Ordnance Survey, is designed to encourage people around the UK to find out what outdoor activities are happening near them and to get outside and participate.

Suitable for the whole family, the family craft day gives you the chance to take part in a range of crafty activities using natural materials typical of those found at the park.

Red Rose Wood Turning will be there to demonstrate the art of wood turning. Plus you can find out all about stone walling with the national Stone Walling Association and have a hoot of a time getting hands on with owls from Turbary Woods. While you are there, why not make the most of the great outdoors with a stroll along the Wyre Estuary, or take the kids to the park to burn of some energy!

Councillor Lynne Bowen, Leisure, Health and Community Engagement Portfolio Holder at Wyre Council, said: “We’ve had a successful fun-packed summer at Wyre Estuary Country Park with many activities taking place, letting families enjoy Wyre’s great outdoors.

“It’ll be excellent to see this continue through the rest of the year. This event will be a wonderful way for families to encounter the great things Wyre Estuary Country Park has to offer.”
