Fun in the Sun at Crow Nest Park
Children and Adults with a disability enjoyed a day in the Springtime sunshine at Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury, on Thursday 17th March, when they attended an “Outdoor Activities Event”, incorporating the Disability Sport Yorkshire Annual Cross Country & Fun Run.
The event, supported by Groundworks’ “Go Walking” Project, and Experience Community’s Mountain Trike Project, offered people a range of outdoor activities, including Geocaching, a nature trail, and wheelchair-scrambling. Visitors to the park, also accessed the outdoor Adventure Playground, and took part in a 600m Cross Country/ Fun Run. Proudly showing off their medals, participants from North Kirklees Adult Day Services, agreed they had enjoyed a great day.
Visitors from Active Social Care in Huddersfield, made the most of the weather, staying on for an impromptu “Kickabout” on the Rugby pitch.
The event, which attracted over 100 visitors, was run as part of the DSY Inclusive Active Communities Project in Kirklees, funded by Community Partnerships.
