People in Spalding, Holbeach, Long Sutton, Donington and Crowland areas are urged to take on South Holland's Summer Fun Quest




People of all ages have been urged to take on a series of challenges over the summer months.

South Holland District Council’s Communities Team has put together the Summer Fun Quest to help encourage people to be creative and active.

Normally the team would be putting on a series of activity days over August but this has been unable to go ahead this year due to coronavirus.

But children and adults will not be missing out as the team have devised a number of nature trails and creative challenges.

The Summer Fun Quest has been organised by Alison White and Jessica Horn, who have been thrilled with the response.

Jessica said: “We have had a lot of positive comments and there have been over 170 views of the tutorial for the dance challenge.
