Take a trip down memory lane!Published Thursday, 18th July 2019
Do you have fond memories of visiting Carlton Camp as a child?
If so, why not take a nostalgic step back in time by coming along to the Hartlepool Borough Council-run site - now called Carlton Adventure - for its Reminiscence Fun Day on Saturday August 3rd from 10am-3pm.
It’s a chance to recall those memorable primary school days when most children got the chance to take part in an unforgettable week of outdoor pursuits in the beautiful setting of the North Yorkshire Moors.
Carlton Adventure General Manager Rachael Graham said: “The event promises to be a fantastic day of family fun and entertainment.
“We hope lots of people will come along and get involved in a whole host of activities, including many who attended as children.
“We look forward to welcoming people and talking to them about their memories of Carlton. If anyone has any old photographs of their time here, it would be great if they could share them with us ahead of the fun day via the Council’s Love Hartlepool campaign. All they have to do is post them on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #LoveHartlepool.”
Activities at the fun day will include archery, a high ropes challenge, an indoor climbing wall and multi-sports. There will also be a balloon artist, a bouncy castle and face painting.
A range of food and drink will be available to purchase throughout the day.
Return transport is available, although this must be booked in advance by calling (01642) 712229. Pick-ups will take place from Mill House Leisure Centre at 9.30am and from the Owton Lodge car park at 9.45am, arriving at Carlton Adventure at 10.30am. The transport will leave to return to Hartlepool at 2pm, dropping off at the Owton Lodge at 2.45pm and Mill House at 3pm. There is a charge of £10 for a family (2 adults and 3 children) or £3 per adult and £2 per child.
