Great success: Children enjoying junior ranger day

Children were given the chance to go wild as part of the first ever junior ranger day hosted by South Ribble Council.

The 14 children, aged between four and 11, took part in the event at Withy Grove Park, which saw them turn their hands to everything from park maintenance to checking out insects and wildlife.

The afternoon was part of a series of activities being run by the council throughout the summer holidays.

Coun Peter Mullineaux, deputy leader of South Ribble Council and cabinet member for neighbourhoods and street scene said: “I am delighted that the first ever junior ranger afternoon was a great success, and I want to thank the employees at South Ribble Council for organising and running the afternoon. We now have a new generation of prospective rangers, who did a fantastic job maintaining Withy Grove Park. Hopefully we can host another junior ranger day in the future, as we are keen to continue to engage children with our thriving green spaces and parks.”
