I love being able to ‘follow’ particular organisations on Facebook as it’s a great way to find out about special events, special offers and such like.
I recently saw via facebook that Sizergh Castle had a special family event on over the Bank Holiday weekend: 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4! They had all the rangers doing different activities from pond dipping to snail racing and face painting to kite making!
Mairi still has a long way to go before she’s 11 and 3/4, but she still got to have a fantastic time pond dipping with Daddy and making some ‘wild’ art. Despite the glorious surroundings and numerable activities on offer, the highlight of Mairi’s day was simply splashing in the puddles!
We really enjoyed the day out and will certainly be back to Sizergh Castle. It’s a gorgeous National Trust property and we were very tempted to join – maybe when Mairi can something more out of it rather than just splashing in puddles will it feel like money well spent!
