Hopes of creating a new footpath and nature trail at the popular Newbridge Park adventure park at Pickering are set to be boosted with a fundraising event on Sunday.
Chairman of the group which masterminded the park, Mike Hawtin, said it is hoped to raise up to £500 at The Sun Inn, Pickering, through a roller-racing competition with riders on static bikes going head to head in a countdown race and there will also be face painting for children among other attractions, as well as a puncture repairing competition.
Newbridge Park has proved a big success story for Pickering’s cycling youngsters, with the creation of a jump park, picnic area, cross country trails and track routes.
Now the aim is to raise funds to transform a footpath which becomes very muddy in wet weather, and to make a nature and explorer trail.
The event at The Sun starts at 1 pm.
