Free half term activities for Wyndham Park

A variety of free activities will take place at the Wyndham Park Visitor Centre this May half-term.

Crafts, photography and guided walks are on offer as part of the programme of activities organised and delivered by South Kesteven District Council with support from park volunteers.

The Visitor Centre has also extended its opening times and will be open for use Tuesday through to Friday from 10am to 4.30pm over the summer period.

Cllr Paul Stokes, Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming new and familiar visitors into our fantastic parks and into the Visitor Centre.

“There is a huge variety of activities on offer to suit all ages and interests, not only during the school holidays but also throughout the year.”

Nature-themed colouring and crafting sessions will take place throughout the week, as well as a Cloud Spotting activity, giving visitors the opportunity to identify different clouds whilst enjoying the tranquility of the park.

A Scavenger Hunt will also take place between 10am and 4pm from Tuesday through to Friday with clues to find hidden throughout the park.

Budding photographers can take part in the Photography Challenge on Tuesday 28th with the winning photo being showcased in the Visitor Centre.

Guided Walking Tours around Wyndham Park will embark from the Visitor Centre at 10.30am until 11am and then again at 1.30pm until 2.30pm on Thursday 30th May. A volunteer guide will be providing an overview of some of the wildlife, landmarks and features of the award-winning park.

For those with additional accessibility needs, a British Sign-Language guide and interpreter is also available to join the walking tour on request.

On Friday, Lincolnshire Police will hold their drop-in surgery and give youngsters the chance to meet their local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO).

All activities are free-of-charge to take part in and do not require any pre-booking. They form part of a regular calendar of activities on offer, in addition to the sports and play areas in the park.
