50 Things....

Great days out from the National Trust

So far, the school holidays have been a bit of a rainy wash out, so if you're desperately trying to think of summer holiday things to do with your little angels this summer, don't despair!

The National Trust have launched a brilliant new campaign to get kids out and about and exploring their local area.

"50 things" is a great new initative, designed to get kids under 12 years old exploring, learning, creating and off the sofa! From finding bugs and skimming stones to jumping puddles, climbing a hill and picking blackberries, there are loads and loads of fun activites for your little treasures to get stuck into.

There's also a brilliant interactive website, where children can track their adventures and find things to do (it's fully accessible for parents too). All you need to do is sign up and create a page for each child.

As well as suggesting things to do, there's also a usefl map to find National Trust places to visit. In Gwynedd, kids (and grown ups) are spoilt for choice - there's the fabulous centre at Craflwyn, Beddgelert, the Roman remains of Segontium at Caernarfon, the vast outdoor playground of Snowdonia and the brilliantly historical house of Penrhyn Castle at Bangor. And all these places are just a short hop from the Oakeley Arms.

Find out more at and enjoy the last few weeks of the (hopefully sunny) summer hols!!
