Half term adventures

Three brave bears take on the fearsome zip wire challenge at Corfe Castle. If you’re inspired by their adventures, why not bring your own teddy along to have a go this half term? Back by popular demand, the Ready Teddy Go club takes to the skies once more from 13-20 February. Any soft toy brave enough to try it is welcome, or you can borrow one of our experienced flying teddies. See What’s On for more details.
