want something to do over the half term break?
why not try the world puddle jumping championships!
The World Puddle Jumping Championships are usually held at Wicksteed Park in Kettering, but in order to comply with coronavirus restrictions the 2020 event will not be held at a single location.
Entrants will instead submit videos of themselves jumping into puddles they have made or found.
They will be scored on jumping ability, enthusiasm and splashing distance.
Judges for the event, in its eighth year, will also consider "stickability", which is described as the amount of mud which clings to each competitor.
Rachel James from Wicksteed Park said the event was "a great way to encourage people, and especially children, to get out into the fresh air".
Entries can be submitted on the park's Facebook page by 2 November, with the prize winners announced soon after.
