Why not try Dangerpoint at half term?

Thinking of something different to do with the kids over half term?
Why not visit 'Dangerpoint' - a centre which provides hands-on safety education for children and young people.
Based in Talacre, Flintshire, 'Dangerpoint' is an independent charity that was established in 2005 via a unique partnership of public, private and voluntary sector stakeholders - including North Wales Police, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, BHP Billiton and many others.
Dangerpoint is a purpose-built education visitor centre with an interactive and realistic set of safety scenarios, each focusing on a critical environment where safety matters. Safety on the roads, the home, railway carriage, beach and virtual world are all covered, as are many more, by rangers who are specially trained to take the children around the centre and educate them in all aspects of personal and social safety.
Dangerpoint exists with the clear objective of equipping children, young people and other vulnerable people with the life skills, behaviours and knowledge to stay safe, avoid un-necessary risks and enjoy healthy lives.
The centre usually accommodates school visits; however, between Monday 29th October and Friday 2nd November the centre will open its doors to the public from 11am until 4pm.
Entrance fee is £4 per person (booking is essential) and there will be an opportunity to take part in a Danger Detective Quest which will have a spooky theme to coincide with Halloween.
To arrange a visit call the centre on 01745 850414 or log onto their website
