Fun day for green project

Have your say

A DAY of family fun marks the anniversary of a project to rejuvenate land around Durham Cathedral.

Works to improve the historic landmark’s woodlands and riverbanks were launched three years ago.

To celebrate the work done so far, which has included clearing and planting areas of the Cathedral Peninsular, the Cathedral is hosting a free family fun on Saturday.

Activities will include wood turning, face painting and orienteering.

There will also be a number of stalls, a reptile petting safari and a cafe.

A birds of prey display will take place along the river itself, with displays set to go ahead at 12.30pm and 3pm. Families are asked to assemble on Prebends Bridge.

People will also be able to take part in a series of guided history walks along the riverbanks, which start at 1.30pm and 2.30pm, with a health walk at 1pm.

The celebration day will be running from 11am to 4pm at the front of the Cathedral and is free and open to all.
