Festive Fun at the Land Trust's Sites

15th December 2015

The Land Trust has the perfect solution to help burn off all of those Christmas calories – get outdoors and enjoy its green open spaces.

Did you know that 175 million mince pies are eaten in the UK every year over the Christmas break? Stacked on top of each other this would scale 3,262 miles high or 600 times the height of Mount Everest.

National land management charity the Land Trust owns manages and maintains sites across the country – including the iconic ‘Lady of the North’ at Northumberlandia, Wirral’s Port Sunlight River Park and country parks at Frickley and Fryston, South Yorkshire.

These sites, along with a host of others, will be the setting for a range of activities to keep families entertained this Christmas. Activities include – a visit from Santa and his elves this weekend at Northumberlandia, Christmas crafts at Fryston Country Park, lantern making at Frickley and to help shed those Christmas calories join us for health walks at Port Sunlight River Park and Countess of Chester Country Park.
