Kids get a taste of the out­doors

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE RAMBLERS -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple headed down to River­side Park near Tyther­ing­ton for a very spe­cial fun day.

The taster day was or­gan­ised by the Bollin Val­ley Part­ner­ship and in­cluded a whole range of out­door and in­door ac­tiv­i­ties specif­i­cally laid on for chil­dren and adults with dis­abil­i­ties.

It in­cluded rock climb­ing, horse rid­ing, craft work­shops, samba drum­ming and archery.

Around 400 peo­ple at­tended the event, which is held an­nual to give kids with dis­abil­i­ties a taste of what they can do in the coun­try­side.

Jim Mid­dle­mass, coun­try­side ranger for the part­ner­ship, said: “The Coun­try­side Taster Day is an an­nual event for chil­dren and adults with dis­abil­i­ties. It is or­gan­ised by the Bollin Val­ley Part­ner­ship with the kind as­sis­tance of many other wildlife groups and vol­un­teers.

“Beech Hall School gen­er­ously al­low the use of their play­ing field for the event. The day hopes to pro­vide a taste of the kinds of ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able in Cheshire East’s beau­ti­ful coun­try­side.”

The Bollin Val­ley Part­ner­ship is re­spon­si­ble for the sites along the Bollin Val­ley.
