FAMILIES are being invited to take a walk with a difference in Skipton's Aireville Park this summer.

The active travel team from North Yorkshire County Council is hosting a series of Xplorer events during the summer holidays in which families can take a treasure hunt challenge.

Participants will be given a map with numbers showing the location of the markers. They will then need to use their map reading skills to navigate their way to the 10 or 15 markers hidden around the park, depending on whether they take the simple or more difficult challenge.

The team held a series of similar challenges in the spring. Those proved popular, so the team is bringing the events back for the summer holidays.

The Xplorer challenge will take place on Tuesday, August 16 at Aireville Park, Skipton.

It will take place from 11am to 2pm. Taking part is free, and people can turn up on the day and look for the active travel team’s stand.

The team has worked with Craven District Council to arrange permission to use the parks, and with the Friends of Aireville Park in Skipton.

Similar events are taking place in other parks across the county.
