Puddle jumping championships at WWT

We all got to do some puddle jumping during stormy spring, but at WWT Slimbridge, they made a competition of it at their popular puddle jumping championships.

The outdoor family fun event was held daily at Welly Boot Land during the February half-term holiday, with certificates and prizes for the best puddle splashes.

Future family events at Slimbridge include Wildflower Walks, 4x4 Photo Safari, Summer Wildlife Photography and Severn Bore Safari. wwt.org.uk
