Flintshire is set to become a summer haven for nature enthusiasts and families with a series of events celebrating the local countryside and coast.

An engaging mix of outdoor explorations and cultural showcases will be hosted throughout June and July.

The series kicks off with ‘The Dee Estuary Expedition’ on 6th June, offering participants a chance to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beautiful Flintshire coast under the guidance of the Coastal Ranger.

For those less able or using a motorised wheelchair, Flint’s ‘A Wheel Expedition’ promises an inclusive experience, showcasing accessible routes and scenic sites.

Nature lovers will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the region’s flora with the help of a local Ecologist and Ranger.

A guided tour of the dunes at Talacre will take place on 7th June, promising an educational and entertaining outing.

Etna Park in Buckley will be revealed in all its summer glory on 18th June, as a knowledgeable Ranger guides visitors through an exciting and informative trail.

Adding to the cultural allure of the summer festivities, Greenfield Valley Trust will host ‘Live at the Valley’, an outdoor music event on 24th June.

The event is set to feature a diverse line-up of musicians and fun activities suitable for all ages.

As the season progresses, Wepre Park will welcome participants for the annual River Ramble and Bat walk in August.

Additionally, Illyria, the award-winning theatre company, will be presenting ‘Robin Hood’, a family-friendly action-packed heist, on 1st July.

“This is a brilliant opportunity for the community to learn more about our natural spaces and enjoy events together and with our knowledgeable team,” said Cllr David Healey, Cabinet member for Climate Change and Economy.

“There is an interesting variety this summer, something for everyone. I look forward to taking part and seeing some of the photographs of the events thereafter.”
