A family fun day with lots of outdoor activities is being held in Raincliffe Woods this Saturday.

The free event will be on from noon to 3pm at Raincliffe Woods Meadow. People are asked to park in the three car parks nearest to Ox Pasture Hall, which give the best access to the meadow.

Marshals will be stationed at the car parks to give out nature trail sheets for people to complete on their way up.

The event is open to all and will feature a barbecue, birds of prey display, face painting, fairy wand making, dough craft painting and a treasure hunt.

Cora Marshall-Kennett, who has organised the event with Juliette McNab, said: “It’s a free family event to help raise awareness of our surroundings and get people out into the countryside.

“We want everyone to realise what they have on their doorstep.”

Cora is a regular volunteer with Scarborough Conservation Society, which organises activities such as planting trees and path maintenance.

The event on Saturday will also feature a music corner for under fives and the chance to build stick towers, which will create a natural home for wildlife.

Everyone is welcome to come and the only charge will be for food and drink.
