The annual Nidderdale and Pateley Show is a traditional agricultural show that attracts over 17,000 people, including many families with children.
“This annual event is a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience the way in which local organisations can work in partnership with their local communities.” – Sue Robson, course tutor
Students were involved in supervising children in the children’s activity tent where parents and children could take part in fun creative activities.
The Tent also considered the needs of children and their families by promoting healthy lunch bags offered as an alternative to the very expensive junk food available on the show ground. Also offered were baby changing facilities and a quiet space for mothers to feed their baby and a bottle warming service!
Students also took part in promoting the Activity Tent facilities to children and their families throughout the day, as well as promoting Harrogate College and the courses available.
