Kids float their boats in summer challenge

* A family team with captain Sunny- James and his parental crew.
Families from Llangollen have been taking part in the Ten Things to do in the Dee Valley summer challenge.

They've been creating boats to float on the Llangollen Canal as part of an event organised by Llangollen Library and The Our Picturesque Landscape project which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Ten things to do in the Dee Valley has been created to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the inscription of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site, as an exciting way to explore the picturesque landscape of the World Heritage Site whilst collecting stamp rewards along the way. 

You can pick up an activity leaflet from Llangollen Tourist Information Centre.

The float a boat challenge involves making your own boat to float on the canal other challenges include exploring the viaduct, aqueduct and tunnels at Chirk and meeting the Llamas at Ty Mawr Country Park.

Sallyanne Hall, Community Engagement Officer Our Picturesque Landscape, said: “It has been great to work jointly with Llangollen library on this project, the children enjoyed making their boats and were able to find some boat themed books to borrow at the same time before heading off to explore the World Heritage Site and earn their stamps for the challenge.”
