The National Trust had ranger and other staff from all over the North West helping out with the Trust's presence at the Dig The City festival in Manchester last week.

Our Rangers were there to run kids' acitivities related to our own campaign ' 50 things to do before you're 11&3/4', and activities on offer included making kites and mudpies (the latter was a favourite with kids and Rangers alike!). We know these things are popular as we've been running them at Wray Castle on our Fun Fridays during the school holidays.

For our Rangers this week it's back to working with a backdrop of hills, lakes and scenery; it's a tough life but someone has to do it!
