Summer survey

Families still have the chance to take part in an online survey during June and July to find out how they like to spend their spare time together.

Tydd St Giles Golf & Country Club is extending the closing date for its survey to discover what 21st century families do to fill their weekends until July 31.

Adrian Hurst, Managing Director, explained: “A recent YouGov poll for the National Trust found that children aged eight to 11 and their parents wanted to spend more time together preferably outdoors and away from the television.

“We’re keen to find out more and do our own online survey to discover exactly what families like doing outside in the open air. We’ve extended the closing date so families now have an extra few weeks to complete the survey.

“At Tydd St Giles we like people to enjoy lots of good old-fashioned outdoor activities such as fishing, walking and, coming soon, archery sessions.”

Set in 150 acres of Cambridgeshire’s finest Fenland, the exclusive community of luxury holiday homes and lodges has been created around an 18-hole golf course and lake.

A £2million leisure complex was opened in February and features a heated indoor pool with a coco jet machine, which controls the water current, steam room and sauna, as well as a fully air-conditioned fitness suite.

Visitors to the estate can also enjoy horse riding, coarse fishing and there are various walks and birdwatching spots.

Adrian added: “We’re really keen to find out what families enjoy doing in their spare time and it doesn’t matter if they don’t do it here at Tydd we’d just like to get a snapshot of what the current trend is for leisure pursuits.”

Those who wish to be entered for a free draw to win a weekend stay for a family of four at the site in October 2013, excluding the half-term school break, will be asked to leave their contact details.

The closing date for all submissions is midnight on July 31.
