As schools break up for Christmas there is plenty of festive fun for all the family in the fresh air this year at Dyrham Park, near Bath.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris had a chance to
stretch his legs in the parkland before visiting the giant outdoor wreath bringing festive cheer and a great chance for a Christmas selfie.
With Covid on the rise again, many families are looking for safer outdoor activities. Fresh air disperses and dilutes the virus. It also helps to evaporate the liquid droplets in which it is carried.
The Metro Mayor was shown around by Rebecca Burton, South West Regional Director of the National Trust and Tom Boden, General Manager. They explained to the metro mayor how the Trust have created special festive trails for both children and adults. Kids can have fun with “Percy the Park Keeper and his friends” in the winter garden while adults can experience the mindfulness trail which takes you around the park and garden suggesting places to stop, think and reflect.
Dan Norris said: “You can really witness winter beauty at Dyrham Park’s garden and parkland and there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. It’s a great day out in the fresh air.”
