Father’s Day at Whitlingham Broad, near Norwich a success

Dads and their sons ignored the rain to enjoy Father's Day at Whitlingham Broad near Norwich.

Whitlingham Outdoor Education Centre held its summer family adventure day today.

Visitors could take part in a string of activities including sailing, canoeing, kayaking, climbing and archery.

Gary Winter, the centre's business development manager, said: 'It went surprisingly well considering the weather. A lot of people were put off by the weather the previous day.

'We had boats constantly going out, and what was nice was that there were a lot of new faces. It's good to see different people trying out new sports and activities.

'We must have had a couple of hundred people visit, including a lot of families, including grandmas and grandpas.'
