The college, in Dibden Purlieu, will be hosting an extravaganza of events and workshops which promise a great day out for the whole family.

Sue Palma, the National Park Authority’s Education Officer, said: ‘A wide range of activities for children of all ages will be on offer to showcase the variety of outdoor learning available in the New Forest. With games to play, craft activities and animals to admire, there will be plenty of opportunities to find out just how much fun learning outside can be.’

Other attractions at the Easter Fair include an indoor Fun Zone with bouncy castle, face painting and karaoke provided by St John’s Ambulance Youth section.

Mountain bike free rider Grant Fielder will perform stunts and tricks, and if you bring along your bike and helmet, there’s a chance for children to complete their level 1 Bikeability cycling certificate free of charge.

Adults can find out what Applemore College’s lifelong learning programme has to offer by taking part in class taster sessions.
