Summer Reading Challenge at Croome

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year and is a national scheme produced by The Reading Agency delivered by libraries. Each year there is a new theme and in 2017 libraries everywhere will be celebrating around the theme of Animal Agents accompanied by Tony Ross' wonderful illustrations.

Natural play area

Discover the natural play area, the perfect place to sit and enjoy the summer sun at one of the many picnic benches scattered around.  Children can test their balance on tree trunks, build dens, sit on the wooden throne and scramble over logs amongst the trees.

RAF themed playground

Children can let their imagination run wild in the RAF themed playground with a control tower, scramble net, bunker, jeep, slides and swings.

Explorer rucksack

Borrow a free explorer rucksack from reception full of fun activities for all the family.

When you go down to Croome today, you might just spot the elusive Croomealoop who loves to explore the parkland.

Can you use your explorer backpacks to find him? You might just meet some other creatures along the way. If you catch a glimpse, create a nature collage and you could win a piece of yummy cake in our canteen.
