Sun and sand proves winning combination at Cumbria family fun day
Last updated at 16:27, Wednesday, 30 July 2014
YOUNGSTERS enjoyed the summer sun – for now – with a family fun day at Sandscale Haws.
Cumbria Wildlife Trust organise the event every year at the nature reserve near Roanhead and this year they picked the perfect day for it.
Around 70 children and their parents took part in a variety of family activities, including crafts, games, exploring local wildlife and a sand sculpturing competition.
Nick Walters, trainee marine and coastal conservation officer at Cumbria Wildlife, said: “It was well-attended, and luckily we had fantastic weather for it.
“There was a range of activities, and the children especially enjoyed the pond and mud dipping and the sand sculpting competition. We try to think of things that will engage people on all levels.”
As well as promoting Cumbria Wildlife’s Living Seas project, which encourages people in the North West to learn more about the Irish Sea, the family fun day was also an opportunity to raise awareness about an upcoming marine conservation zone consultation.
