Discover more about NKDC at Whisby Open Day

Fancy doing something different after school, after work or on a sunny afternoon?

Make the most of free parking, free play activities and extended opening at Whisby Natural World Centre on Monday, July 17, when the award-winning attraction hosts the Discover NK showcase as part of a Whisby Open Day.

It’s a great opportunity to discover more about North Kesteven, the District Council and the secret which lies behind the area’s success as a District of Flourishing Communities – as well as exploring the vast array of walks, wildlife and the wonderful shop, cafe and play spaces at Whisby.

As always, the nature park just off the A46 Lincoln Bypass is open from dawn till dusk, but what makes July 17 different is that the centre at its heart is open for longer, with events organised by the site’s operating partners North Kesteven District Council and Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.

It’s a great chance to discover the newly-extended free play facilities indoors and out for adventurous tots, teens and in-betweens, to experience the onsite cafe and bistro and to engage with a vast array of flora and fauna.

From 2pm to 7pm the conferencing and exhibition hall, recently refurbished as part of wide-ranging £250,000 investment by North Kesteven District Council, will be showcasing a sense of what the Council does in making a difference to the daily lives of all of its 111,000-plus residents and businesses.

You can also meet Council Leader Cllr Richard Wright, the Council’s Executive Board, other Members and senior managers to discuss the Council’s priority actions and help shape its forward direction.

“We are very proud of the engagement we enjoy as a District Council with our residents, businesses and partners and would like to extend an open invitation to them all to join us at Whisby on July 17, to discover more about the difference we all make in partnership locally, day in, day out, year round,” said Cllr Wright.

“Yes, we collect one bin or another weekly, we run elections, manage planning applications, run leisure centres and provide council housing; but we do so much more which positively impacts us all, our health, our wellbeing and our fortunes and improves the communities we live in.

“I would like to invite residents, businesses and community leaders to discover how all of this activity is prioritised to achieve a stronger economy, better homes, vibrant communities and quality efficiently-run Council operations.”

Drop into Whisby Natural World Centre, anytime between 2pm and 7pm on July 17. Free parking, children’s activities and refreshments and you can also stay longer and later for supper, walks and yet more play.
