Free Easter Explorer Event in Ashbourne

Local people are encouraged to get involved in a special free Easter Explorer Event in Ashbourne Recreation Ground on Wednesday 14 April from 1-3pm.

This fun family challenge, organised by Derbyshire Dales District Council, is aimed at primary and pre-school children and their parents, grandparents and guardians.

Janet Chadfield from the sports development team, said:
“Just come along, grab a map and away you go! Depending on how quick participants are it will take between 30-45 minutes to complete.
“Using a simple map of the park the aim is to find the points marked on the map and write down the name of the secret animal or colour depending on the course.
“No experience of map reading is necessary and Explorer is perfect for children as they can run around in a safe and friendly environment and will have a great adventure searching for the secret markers.”

The District Council's outdoor exercise sessions bounce back in Ashbourne from 13 April.

Paused again during the second coronavirus lockdown, the sessions run by the Council's sports development team will restart on Tuesday mornings with a Very Easy Walk from the Recreation Ground at 10am in accordance with Covid-secure guidelines and a Buggy Walk at 11.30am meeting in the leisure centre car park.

On Wednesdays look out for exercise classes on the Recreation Ground, with strict social distancing.

There's a 45-minute cardio, tone and strengthen class at 9.30am, followed by a buggy bootcamp at 10.30.
Thursdays from 9.15am feature a Couch to 5K nine week programme, again in the Recreation Ground, and on the same day there’s a return for the Rusty Rackets tennis sessions at 10.30am.
