Have your say

More than 300 people enjoyed a family fun day at Castleton Visitor Centre.

The Peak District centre held the event to show people the opportunities available for outdoor recreation.

The day, organised by the Peak District National Park Authority as part of National Parks Week, included stationary bike riding, drystone walling and face-painting and more than 200 people took part in environmental education activities, including river dipping and geocaching.

Head of Field Services Andy Farmer said: “National Parks Week events are a great way of introducing families to getting outdoors to enjoy the national park and try something new.”

“Our aim was to help people discover ways of appreciating nature and local heritage.”
