Families are being urged to enjoy the great outdoors by joining in the fun of a spring spectacular.

North Lincolnshire Council is organising the free fun day on Crowle Moors on Thursday, April 11, where there will be horses, goats and a treasure hunt.

Youngsters will be able to meet and feed rare breed goats and chickens, watch a demonstration of a working shire horse and join in themselves. They will also be able to explore the world of creepy crawlies on the mini beast hunt. There will also be craft activities.

The moors, off Dole Road, used to be used for pat extraction. It is now a site of special scientific interest.

Coun John Briggs, cabinet member for culture, said: “The Spring Spectacular is a great way for families to go outdoors. It gives children the opportunity to be hands-on with the animals and they can also take part in a treasure hunt.”

The day is split into two sessions: 10.30am to noon and 1.30pm to 3.30pm. Children should be accompanied by and adult and suitable clothing is advised.
