"Supporting Doncaster's communities to be active, enjoy being outdoors and visiting local parks and green spaces is at the core of what Get Doncaster Moving is all about. We're delighted to be working with Doncaster Mumbler to encourage families to get outdoors and active together this summer." - Councillor Nigel Ball, Portfolio Holder for Public Health, Leisure, Culture and Planning, City of Doncaster Council.

"We know that it can be challenging to find enough activities to entertain children during the summer holidays (and to balance the financial impact) which is why we have launched a new fun, free interactive trail for Doncaster's Mini-Mumblers. Our trails are inclusive, accessible and a great way to bring families together to explore Doncaster's many fantastic open, shared spaces." - says Caroline Brooks, founder of Doncaster Mumbler.
