A FAMILY fun day will aim to inspire generations to get involved in protecting a woodland on the banks of the River Wear.

Durham Cathedral will host the free event on Saturday, from 11am to 3pm, as a celebration of the Heritage Lottery Fund-backed project.

Activities will include arts and crafts, a rockpool display and willow weaving, with a photography workshop at 1pm.

Organisations involved so far, including Natural England, the Woodland Trust, Durham University, Durham Wildlife Trust and the John Muir Trust, will also hold displays.
