Big Wednesday on Coldham’s Common: Wednesday 2nd August
Invitation to Big Wednesday on Coldham’s Common: Wednesday 2nd August
Please do join us on Coldham's Common (in the area closest to the Abbey Pool by the BMX track) at the start of the summer holidays on Wednesday 2nd August for FREE ACTIVITIES from 1pm- 4pm to celebrate National Play Day when Historyworks is teaming up with ChYpPS, Cambridge University Museums, Abbey People and Cam Utd and others to provide a huge variety of FREE activities and refreshments for local families to enjoy including Geocaching, Birds of Prey, Street Games, flight-themed crafting and face-painting.
The Historyworks team will show the geocaching trail with a new map and scavenger hunt around Coldham's Common to encourage young people and families to explore the lovely spaces on the Common, find out about the local history with Helen and win toy prizes! Mario will showcase geocaching and demonstrate the range of caches and toys you can swap and help the public set their phones to use the trail we've made. Tizzy will oversee badge-making activity for young people to make on a wildlife theme, so that they have a badge to put into a geocache box, to encourage their engagement with the geocache trail around the Abbey area. We hope that the owls from the Raptor Foundation will pose again for selfies and become models for badge-makers! The Raptor Foundation will bring their birds of prey and we will make Pterosaur puppets and Pterosaur gliders with help from ChYpPS, to remember the flying lizards that flew over the Common in the Jurassic period!
