Wokingham Borough Council’s countryside service and libraries team have an egg-cellent array of online and physical activities to keep you and your family entertained across the Easter break.
Spring into action this school holiday with a series of sessions at the Dinton Activity Centre. Kids are invited to make a splash with our Covid-19 secure water and land activities, from our Junior Sailing Club right through to our Wild Days and Welly Days.
Boat Hire re-opens on Friday 2 April, with prices starting at from just £8. You can take your pick from pedalo to paddleboard, or even kayak and canoe - with 94 acres of lake there's plenty of space to enjoy the sunshine at a safe distance from others!
On Sunday 18 April, see the lake come to life on our Springwatch Paddle. Look out for our waterfowl chicks like ducklings, cygnets and goslings and our beautiful colourful dragonflies. Finish the paddle with a nice warm drink and slice of homemade cake outside the Activity Centre.
Before you hop on down to Dinton’s destination play area, please ensure you book in advance. Tickets are free but limited to a maximum of six people per booking and 150 people per time slot.
