On Saturday June 15, Cambridge’s newest district, Eddington, is hosting a day of free activities, fun and learning - the Eddington Discovery Day.
Take part in the first Eddington Discovery Day next month
The day will include hands-on activities, games and learning for children, families and people of all ages.
Events to look out for include a Toy Swap where you can trade toys, get help to repair your favourites or even build a new toy from old parts. There will also be storytelling workshops, outdoor games, art, crafts and badge making. Plus have a go at eco-friendly cooking at the Soup Disco – where you can cook, dance and get a free lunch!
Come and have a go at the cycling themed activities including smoothie bikes, sprint challenges and a pedal powered jukebox. You can also take your bike along for a free check from Dr Bike and have a go at riding different types of pedal powered machines.
Learn about helping the environment through recycling and reducing plastics, carbon reduction and healthy travel.
Visitors can also hear how Eddington is helping the environment through its energy, heating, water and recycling systems and how the local wildlife is being supported - with a behind –the-scenes look at the energy centre and conservation tours taking place.
Have fun, get healthy and learn about helping the environment by coming along to the events between 10am and 4pm.
Warren Forsyth, Operations Director at Eddington, said: “The Eddington Discovery Day is a fun way to get even more people involved with Eddington’s sustainability goals, and with lots of fun activities planned it will be a great day out. We hope many of our friends, neighbours and supporters – existing and new - will take the time to join us for this occasion.”
