Mr Amess joined in the day’s events at Belchamps Activity Centre, Hawkwell. A wide variety of activities were provided for the children ranging from donkey rides to a rifle range. The children, aged 5-9 years old were encouraged to try rock climbing and abseiling and constant music kept the children entertained throughout the day.
