Does your dad like tinkering with things? Then take him along to the Father’s Day Meccano Challenge at York Castle Museum on Saturday, June 15 (not Father’s Day itself) from 10am – 3pm. Make an awesome model to impress your family (and beat all the other dads) which will be entered into an important test at the end of the day. The winner will not only get a goody bag, but their creation will be put on display.
Head to St Lawrence’s Church this Saturday, June 14 to support a great cause with St Leonard’s Hospice Summer Fair and Craft Sale. Win some fab prizes with their raffle, try your hand at LindyHop, browse the vintage and handmade stalls, or just dig into some cake with a nice cup of tea. From 1 – 4pm.
