Families are encouraged to explore their park as part of a series of Xplorer events at Hornscroft Park in Bolsover.

Bolsover District Council and Bolsover District Village Games are providing Xplorer events which are family-friendly navigational challenges for all ages.

Developed by British Orienteering, Xplorer gives children the chance to gain new skills such as map reading and working as a team. Xplorer involves searching for treasure where participants find markers and complete challenges on their hunt.

Starting on Sunday, June 28 as part of the Bolsover Gala on Hornscroft Park, these events are an excellent way to get active before and during the school summer holidays.

The events include: Sunday, June 28 – Bolsover Gala – 10-4pm; Monday, July 27 – 1-3pm; Thursday, July 30 – 1-3pm; Monday, August 3 - 1-3pm; Saturday, August 8 – Freedom Community Family Fun Day – 11.30-4pm; Monday, August 17 - 1-3pm; Thursday, August 20 - 1-3pm.
