Have your say

Stockeld Park has been one of the places to be for families wanting some fun in the sun this weekend.

The popular visitor attraction, near Wetherby, welcomed children’s TV favourite Naomi Wilkinson yesterday as part of its Summer Adventure entertainment programme.

And today it played host to the Colour Run, with hundreds of people stepping out in eye-catching style in aid of Martin House Children’s Hospice, also near Wetherby.

Participants set out in white T-shirts but completed the 3.5km course colourfully decorated from head to toe after passing through various ‘paint stations’.

Martin House events manager Caroline Hudson told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “Everyone seemed to have a good time – the runners made for a really spectacular sight as they crossed the finish line.”

Yesterday saw CBBC’s Naomi giving visitors an insight into her life presenting nature shows such as Live ‘n’ Deadly and Wild and Weird.

Stockeld Park’s Summer Adventure programme runs from 10am to 6pm daily until Monday, September 7.

It hands kids the chance to try out everything from interactive playgrounds and electric scooter trails to roller rinks and wet weather craft zones.

Stockeld Park is marking this year’s Yorkshire Day celebrations with a weekend of superhero-themed activities on August 1 and 2.

People are being encouraged to come along dressed as their favourite superhero, with prizes on offer to those taking part.
