Fam­i­lies gear up for chal­lenge

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

FAM­I­LIES were all geared up for a green-themed chal­lenge.

Hun­dreds de­scended on Ferry Mead­ows on Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day to take part in a fam­ily out­door chal­lenge, as part of this year’s Green Fes­ti­val.

Sup­ported by Cono Sur, who pro­duce or­ganic wines, the event saw mums, dads and chil­dren em­bark on a cy­cle ride around the park while hav­ing a go at some fam­ily friendly chal­lenges along the route.

From watch­ing out for wildlife and climb­ing a spi­der moun­tain to fol­low­ing clues, solv­ing rid­dles and hav­ing a go at archery . And af­ter the event, fam­i­lies en­joyed a well-earned pic­nic, browsed stalls and even vis­ited a spe­cial bike doc­tor.

Peter­bor­ough En­vi­ron­ment City Trust spokes­woman Nyree Am­barchian said: “The day was bril­liant.

“We were a bit ap­pre­hen­sive but we had more than 100 fam­i­lies tak­ing part. Next year will be even big­ger.”
