The BSAVA is preparing to mark its 60th anniversary in shimmering style with a family fun day full of water-based activities.

Profession members are being invited to take part in the celebrations.

Fun day

A day of fun and games will get underway at Carsington Water in Derbyshire on 17 June.

The Diamond Splash ’n’ Dash event will include a paddle spring boat race for teams of six people.

Dirt run races

For those who prefer their events on dry land, there will also be a variety of “dirt run” races for adults and children alike at various distances.

A BSAVA spokesman said: “There will be lots to see and do, and events for all ages and abilities.”

Ticket prices start from £5 if booked in advance.
