Out and About in the Bay and Beyond

We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country.  There are so many things to do and see.  Some things like Paignton Zoo or Living Coasts can be quite costly when you are a family.  But there are some lovely activities that you could do that don't cost the earth or are free!  You could go rock pooling or crabbing.  Have a walk in your local woods and look for mini beasts or see how many different types of trees or plants you can identify.  What about pond dipping? A boat trip to Brixham.  Picnic at Cockington or Abbey Meadows.  A trip down to Oddicombe on the Cliff Railway!

Torbay council has  a great website with information about numerous different types of activities, clubs and child friendly places to go.  Please see the link below.

From time to time we are sent information about different clubs, activities etc in the local community which we will upload to this page.  So please do check back regularly.

 

 

Active Devon have put together a list of resources that parents might find useful during the holidays.  Even with many covid restrictions being lifted we know there will be many children who are less active during the holidays and hope the list will help parents to find local or on-line activities to engage their young people.

Help children and young people to boost their health and wellbeing by promoting being active

The walk to school campaign materials have some excellent ideas for engaging children in activities en-route to school that will work equally well on other walks eg. to the shops – have fun and enjoy that walk!  An example from the booklet: FUN FACT: The flashing orange lights on a zebra crossing are called Belisha beacons. They are named after a British politician, Leslie Hore-Belisha. How many Belisha beacons can you spot while out for a walk today?
