Springfest Fun For All The Family

By Angela Clark

Looking for something to do with the family this weekend? Why not come along and join Scottish Canal’s Springfest at Bowling Harbour on Saturday.

From Easter egg hunts, canoeing and water zorbing to woodcraft and pony treks, there are activities for all ages.

The BHive Activity Hub will also offer the chance to try out everything from stand-up paddle boarding to soft archery and an array of garden games.

Springfest will run from 10am until 4pm around Bowling Harbour.

Matt Skilling, Activities Advisor at Scottish Canals, said: “Bowling is fast becoming a bustling hub of activity on and off the water. Springfest is a great way to way to showcase everything that’s happening at the gateway to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

“Whether they’re picking up a paddle and taking to the water, exploring the many stories of Bowling’s past, or hopping around on an Easter egg hunt, I’d encourage everyone to come along and get involved.

“It’s a great chance to get outdoors, learn new skills and enjoy a fantastic day out – whatever the weather.” 

The Clydesider team will be handing out copies of the magazine so pop by and have a chat with us.
