Join the Holmfirth Family Nature Trail
We at Fair Trader have teamed up with River Holme Connections to bring you a fun, family-friendly and educational activity that has been planned for this February half-term (16th–21st). All you need is a pen or pencil and a scrap of paper. Wrap up warm and head out!
The Holmfirth-based Family Nature Trail Event consists of a selection of 10 bird photos randomly fixed within the trail. Hidden in the information within each bird photo is a bold typed letter. Identify each letter and spell the name of a local shop in the town.
The trail is short and fun to do, giving children a chance to identify some of our most beautiful and striking local birds. The trail passes through the Sands area of the park. Get the kids out for some fresh air and admire our little section of the River Holme.
See map below for the route. You can right-click or press-and-hold to download (depending on platform).
The trail finishes at the Old Tollhouse, which houses Holmfirth's Fair Trader shop. In the bird-themed shop window you will spot the last letter of the competition. It will be well hidden within the window display!
Once you have completed your answer, post it through the shop's letterbox with your family's name and contact details. The winning family will be chosen at random.
To win some extra goodies for your family, please take a photo of your family outside Fair Trader, post it on social media and tag us in it.
The prize consists of lots of sustainable and fairly-traded products including a bird feeder, a birdbox, and some maps and leaflets for you and your family to encourage birds into your garden and to get the kids engaging with nature.
