As part of the City of Rochester Society’s Civic Day celebrations, families are invited to enjoy free bridge building activities at the Guildhall Museum, provided by the Rochester Bridge Trust.
The activities, which are among a number of events across Medway on Saturday, 18th June, will give children and adults the opportunity to learn about engineering and bridges and try their hand at creating a range of structures from the materials provided.
Trust Education Officer Sharron Mackenzie explained: “Bridges are an important part of our lives, joining communities and making it a lot easier for us to get from A to B. This day of bridge building activities will be a fun, hands-on way to find out more about these important structures. It also aims to promote the potential of civil engineering as a career.
“Of course, this will also be a great way for adults and children alike to test their creativity and have fun together.”
Langdon the Lion, the Rochester Bridge Trust’s education mascot, will be taking a day off from his Guardian of the Bridge duties to attend the event, which will run from 11am until 2pm.
Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride, with local events co-ordinated by the City of Rochester Society. See www.civicvoice.org.uk/campaigns/civic-day/ for more information.
