Vicky Witch on board for the summer holidays!

3 August 2015

Grab the kids and head for Nelson’s Victoria Park – Vicky Witch and friends are on board for the summer holidays!

The Vicky Witch activity trail has been updated with six new activity boards.

The boards, dotted along the one mile trail, have fun activities for children and their parents to do together while out walking. Activities include nature hunts, camera quests and traditional games.

Councillor Nadeem Ahmed, Executive Member for Communities, Parks & Recreation, said:
“The activity trail has been very popular with families since it was launched in May, with many of them coming back regularly to search for the sculptures of Vicky Witch and friends along the route.

“We’ve updated the activity boards for families to enjoy over the long school summer holidays.

“They’ll give families something fresh to do the next time they come down to the park,” he added.

The trail, which was launched in May of this year, is funded through Pendle’s Up & Active project. Up and Active aims to help Pendle people, including families, take small steps to become more active, more often.

Families can pick up the Vicky Witch activity trail guide and map from the Victoria Park pavilion, which is open for drinks and snacks on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The map can also be downloaded from

Kieron Roberts, Green Spaces Development Officer at Pendle Council, said:
“We’ve got more plans for the Vicky Witch trail in the pipeline. Keep your eyes on the dragon Unsworth’s tunnel later this summer for some exciting changes!”

You can keep in touch with Vicky Witch news on Vicky’s Facebook page – search for ‘Vicky Witch activity trail’. We encourage families to share their photos of themselves enjoying the trail and leave reviews too.
