Enjoy what’s on your doorstep this half term

Did you know that Cambridge city’s original country park ‘Wandlebury’ is just a 15 minute cycle ride from Ninewells?  The tranquil open space offers more than eight miles of wonderful walks through mature woods, meadows and chalk grassland areas. There is always something to do at Wandlebury. Stroll round the park at a leisurely pace, taking in the circular historic Iron Age Hillfort – a Scheduled Ancient Monument steeped in myth and legend.

It’s the perfect place to take the children for holiday activities, and this half term is no exception.  Below are a some of the events on offer:

 Tuesday 25th October 10am-12pm

Awesome Autumn.

For children ages 3-7.

Bring your children to Wandlebury for an exciting morning exploring the park, finding out how wildlife prepares for winter and collecting beautiful leaves and seeds. Afterwards, head to the Stable Rooms and get creative for an art session with the wonderful autumnal colours. Bring a drink and a snack and dress for being outside and all weathers!

Why not stay for an autumnal picnic and explore the Country Park afterwards?

Children must remain accompanied throughout the event. Places are limited and must be booked and paid for in advance.
