The Haddon Hill Big Adventure Day on Wednesday 24th July was a great success with over 200 people; including 5 youth and community groups providing and taking part in the fun activities provided. With activities ranging from orienteering challegnes to an Exmoor Beast hunt; it really was a great day out for all ages.
The next Big Adventure Day is at North Hill, Minehead on Saturday 31st August is not to be missed! See vintage vehicles and living history displays as we explore the wartime heritage of North Hill and vehicles, plus games, bushcraft and ponies.
Once again, thank you to all of our volunteers and providers for helping to make it a brilliant day for all!
