COUNTY Down residents recently flocked to the Silent Valley Mountain Park recently to celebrate autumn with NI Water at a special Family Fun day.
NI Water hosted the event to mark the onset of autumn and remind people that they don’t have to go into hibernation just yet… there is still lots of fun to be had!
Activities included archery, clay pigeon shooting, candle making and Mr Hullaballo’s Interactive Theatre. NI Water’s Education Manager, Jane Jackson, said there was plenty of Autumn fun at the Silent Valley and added, “The scale of activities ensured that there was something to suit everyone.
“Many participated in arts and crafts with the doodlebugs workshop and a pottery demonstration and others chose to climb the rolling rock climbing tower. The more active visitors tried out the Segway rides, ventured on an Autumn Treasure Hunt and had the chance to hold a hedgehog or an owl.”
The Silent Valley in the Mournes is close to Kilkeel and definitely worth a visit… absolutely breath-taking views!
