Kids get a taste of the outdoors
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.
