Families are being invited to take part in a host of outdoor activities in Sudbury during half-term.

Children can enjoy Kayaking, pond dipping, minibeast hunts, digging for archaelogical treasures, arts and crafts, foraging for wild food and more at the Mill Acre boating lake on Friday, June 1, between 11am-4pm.

The event is one of many taking place throughout the year for the River Stour Festival and is being organised by the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Stour Valley Project in partnership with SVEN, the Stour Valley Education Network. The event is free and there is no need to book.

Nigel Chapman, chairman of the Dedham Vale AONB and Stour Valley Joint Advisory Committee, said: “This family event is a great way of encouraging children to get close to nature and enjoy the great outdoors.

“It’s so important for their health and wellbeing and for the future of the planet.”
