Fancy flying a Spitfire?

FOREST skills, arts, crafts and even flying a Spitfire are all in the mix at Wallington over the next week.

The National Trust-run property near Cambo is offering a range of sessions for children to try out with their families.

Today and tomorrow there will be the chance to fly a Spitfire Sim in the Courtyard, from 11am to 3pm.

And on Saturday there is Forest Family Fun where visitors can learn woodland skills, such as fire making, shelter building and tool making.

The activity runs from 10am to 2pm so participants should take a packed lunch, and it costs £10 for adults and £5 for children up to the age of 14. Booking is essential.

On Sunday there will be Best of British storytelling sessions at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3pm, and on Monday Krafty Kidz will offer the opportunity to make craft items, from 11am to 3pm, for a maximum cost of £6 per item.

Next week, families can try making and flying their own kites, as well as orienteering, on Wednesday, from 11am to 12.30pm, and from 1.30pm to 3pm, and on Thursday they can go bug hunting and join the Wallington rangers for snail racing at the same times.
