FAMILIES tried their hands at a variety of activities including rock climbing, canoeing and kayaking at a centre's open day.

More than 1,500 visitors descended on the Dinton Pastures Multi-Activity Centre in Hurst on Saturday, June 9 to take part in the taster sessions.

Crowds also tried out sailing and bushcraft and had a go on the segways.

Chris Buggy, from Wokingham Borough Council's Countryside Service, said: "All activities proved very popular with paddleboarding providing a new and exciting activity for the centre."

The public can use the wall on Sundays from

1-4pm until October 28 at £5 per child and £7 per adult for a 20-minute session. Members of the public can rent kayaks and canoes on weekends from noon-4pm during term time and Mondays to Sundays from 11am-5pm in the school holidays.

Hire is £5 for the first person and an extra £3 for additional people.

The centre runs a range of courses, including powerboating. Visit or call 0118 934 4424.
