Family sports day by the Lake
Published Friday 7th September 12
The beautiful Thrybergh Country Park is set to host a day of fun and families from across the borough are being invited to get set, get ready and go!
The "Back to School" Family Sports day, set to be held on Saturday September 22 between 11am - 3pm, will allow people of all ages to pick up a score pad and take part in as many fun games and challenges as they want.
The day will include wacky relays, bug and spoon race, tug of war, Wellington boot tossing, circus skills, penalty shoot out, Woodlouse racing and much more.
The day, which is organised in conjunction with Rotherham Council's Sports Development team and DC Leisure, will have teams competing for points to win tasty treats from the Country Park Café.
Contestants do not have to participate in every event, but the more games played means a greater the opportunity to gain points.
From each team the person with the highest score can claim a free main meal and every participant wins a hot drink or kids Slushy.
Cabinet Member for Culture and Tourism, Cllr Amy Rushforth, said: "What a fantastic day at a fantastic venue. Thrybergh Country Park is one of the most beautiful places in the borough.
"The staff and Rangers at the park have thought of some fantastic events for the day that are both fun and highlight the ecological work done around the park and the animals, great and small who make up the wildlife population.
"I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday then enjoying the fresh air in great surroundings taking part in such fun games."
