A real family treat is on the cards today (Thursday) as the spectacle that is the annual Ambleside Sports comes round again.

This 200 year old popular event just keeps getting better, adding more activities and attractions each year at Rydal Park, just half a mile from the town centre.

Locals and visitors can enjoy gruelling fell races, track and cycle trails, hound trails and the traditional Cumberland and Westmorland Wrestling. Gates open at 10am, first event at noon.
