A FUN-FILLED family fun day is to be held at a much-loved Burbage beauty spot in a week and six days’ time.
That is because Burbage Common and Woods will be holding their annual open day on Sunday, 14 May. It will see the visitor centre sport a marquee fitted with craft stalls, and charity stalls with both local and national environmental charities in attendance.
The event has been arranged by borough council bosses from Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC), and will make the most of the natural environment.
To mark the occasion, a whole host of activities will be held, ranging from workshops, demonstrations, animals, a falconry display, maypole dancing, crafting, and other outdoor activities. There will also be food and refreshment stalls in catering areas.
In a statement issued to the Hinckley Free Press, a council spokesperson confirmed that admission into the event is completely free of charge, but there may be a small charge to partake in some of the activities and workshops.
Paul Scragg, the Borough Council’s Senior Green Spaces Officer, said: “This event is always a great day out for the whole family, there is something for everyone. Make a date in the diary and come along.
“As in previous years, we will be operating a one-way system for car parking and ask everyone to follow the signs and be aware of pedestrians. We look forward to seeing you.”
