The Jordans Trust charity, part of Jordans Mill near Biggleswade, has unveiled this year’s festive family activity – and it’s all about penguins.

The heritage centre is running a penguin trail in the gardens, meadow and woodland until New Year’s Eve.

Boys and girls can collect Mrs Penguin’s activity sheet, then search for the 10 members of the Penguin family around the site to help them complete their Christmas dinner.

Jennie Osborne, who has organised the trail alongside Debbie Seale, said: “The trail is a great low-cost family activity which helps children understand the importance of food and natural habitats, which is what we are all about.”

After the trail, kids can take their completed sheet back to the mill shop and collect a small treat.

The mill is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. For more see or call 01767 603940.
