Summer Holiday Challenge – The Towneley Code

Our Summer Holiday Challenge starts on Saturday 20th July and runs throughout the school holidays!

It involves both a picture and a word trail taking you around woodland walk 3 on the Towneley Walks leaflet. You can get the leaflet via the link or from the Hall and Rotunda. It is a 2.5 mile route and you don’t have to do it all in one go, it can be done over more than one visit.

When you have cracked the code you can design a poster for our competition using the code to tell people how to look after our lovely park. (2 entries per trail sheet purchased)

Sheets are available from, and can be returned to, the Hall Shop or the Rotunda and cost £5 (cash preferred at the shop). Prizes will be presented on Thursday 22nd August.

All profits go to the Friends of Towneley Park to help maintain and improve the park.
