Broads Authority annual open morning now part of the Outdoors Festival

The Broads Authority’s annual open morning takes place this Saturday, kicking off the 16-day Outdoors Festival.

For the first time this year the event is at Whitlingham Country Park, with fun activities outside and stands in the barn.

The café will be closed for normal service until 2pm but will be serving complimentary refreshments courtesy of Churchill Catering from 10am for those attending.

Chief Executive John Packman said: “You can bring the family along to try pond dipping, badge making, quizzes and other activities and chat to officers and members.

“Stands will include information on conservation, land management, our environment maintenance, planning, climate change, volunteers, education, tourism and of course our rangers.

“This is your chance to learn about what we do and how we look after the Broads and there will be two presentations upstairs in the barn with an opportunity to ask questions afterwards.”

RSVPs are not required, just turn up on the day from 10am. The event will finish at 1.30pm and the café will be open as soon as possible afterwards.

The Outdoors Festival runs from 7 to 22 May featuring a range of activities and events across the Broads from canoe taster sessions to special mill openings and from guided rail and sail trips to museums at night. Check out the Broads Outdoors Festival website for all the details.
