Burrington Combe Family Fun Day : Free Mendip Rocks! Festival event in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)Sunday 18th September

Have a go at orienteering around Burrington Ham and learn how to use a map and compass. Whilst the adults are orienteering the children can be discovering what wildlife lives on Burrington Ham using the free Nature Log Book. Take a break from the orienteering half way round to discover what animals are eating the nuts by joining the great nut hunt and learn how to make your very own leaf prints using a simple but exciting method. After finding your way back successfully you will then be able to make your very own Mendip Rocks! mobile to take home as a souvenir.
