If you’re looking for something to do over the summer holidays with kids I’d recommend sending off for this. Our’s has just arrived. It’s an activity book and duck-food pouch being given out free by the Canal and River Trust to get kids involved in waterside activities over the summer. You can follow this link to submit your details to get one: You can use the Trust’s interactive map to find a watery destination near to you and they also have downloadable activity guides for each place. I’m slightly baffled as to who looks after the canal near to us as I always thought it was the Canal and River Trust but it’s not on their list. Nevertheless they do great work in maintaining miles and miles of waterways for human users and wildlife. For several years we lived right beside the Leeds – Liverpool Canal and we loved it. Watch out ducks here we come!
