The Summer Holidays are again quite tricky in 2021 because not all holidays are possible and not all holiday clubs are running. Whether you are juggling working from home or not, the weeks over July and August can be a challenge to fill with activities to keep the kids from getting restless!
There are outdoor tennis and ping pong to try for free. Splash pools are great for cooling down and having fun. Look out for them in King's Hedges, Abbey and soon Coleridge.
