Fam­ily chal­lenge in­spires teamwork

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

FAM­I­LIES worked to­gether to tackle var­i­ous chal­lenges at a spe­cial event in Or­ton Mal­borne, Peter­bor­ough.

Around 11 fam­i­lies came to the Jig­saw Cen­tre, in Her­ling­ton, dur­ing its first-ever Fam­ily Chal­lenge Day last week.

From build­ing a boat with five lol­lipop sticks, half a paper straw and a paper sail that could travel across a pad­dling pool to cre­at­ing a gi­raffe from three straws and sel­lotape, the event aimed to give fam­i­lies the op­por­tu­nity to work as a team to­gether.

The fam­ily who scored the most points dur­ing the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties won a fam­ily ticket for the Nene Val­ley Rail­way and the day was rounded off with a bar­be­cue.

Cen­tre events man­ager Vanessa Skin­ner said: “It was a great suc­cess. The feed­back we have had from par­ents was that it was nice to be able to work to­gether with chil­dren to achieve a re­sult.

“We will def­i­nitely look to do more chal­lenges in the fu­ture and to get more fam­i­lies in­volved.”
