To celebrate the reopening of Nene Outdoors, the Trust is hosting a Family Fun Day on Sunday where visitors will be offered 50% off the cost of all pay and play activities, including windsurfing, sailing and pedalos.

There will be numerous activities going on around the Lakeside Centre including free mini food and drinks and music in Lakeside Kitchen & Bar, and a children’s paper boat competition.
