Summer Fun

Train running through beautiful countryside

Here are just some of our ideas to get you started with family fun this Summer!

All Aboard For Rushden

All Aboard For Rushden

Rediscover Rushden and the app ‘All Aboard for Rushden!’ created back in 2018! It’s the perfect activity while we are taking our daily exercise! ‘All aboard for Rushden’ is a mobile phone app that has been designed to encourage use of the East Northamptonshire Greenway, a cycle path that links the town centre to Rushden Lakes. The free app is available in app stores and uses Artcodes technology, which allows users to scan pictures in order to link to content, in a similar way to a QR code. When users find the images along the Greenway, they link to pages that tell the story of the town.
