A FUN-PACKED day for the whole family is promised when Burbage Common holds its annual open day on Sunday 8 May.

The area around the visitor centre at the Leicester Road entrance will be transformed with a marquee accommodating craft and charity stalls and local and national environmental charities.

The event, which is organised by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, really does make the most of the natural environment with workshops, demonstrations, animals, a map display by Hinckley & District Museum, maypole dancing, crafts and other outdoor activities. There will also be food and refreshments stalls catering for all tastes.

Admission to the event, which runs from 10:30am to 4:30pm, is free, but there may be a small charge for some of the activities and workshops held.

Executive Member for Parks and Open Spaces, Councillor Bill Crooks said:

It is an absolute delight that we are able to re-instate this event at the Common. It is always a great day out for the family, there is lots to see and do. Make a date in the diary and come along.
