During the Easter break, parents are able drop off their children from 8am with breakfast provided for them on arrival. They then enjoy an action-packed day of fun before being collected by parents by 5.45pm.

A wide range of activities have been lined up for youngsters as Sandra Robinson, the council’s out-of-school coordinator, explains: “The team have put together a varied programme which include fun with food, jewellery

making, sports and games, a trip to the cinema, movie and toy day plus visits to Summerhill, Ward Jackson Park and Hall Hill Farm.

“We will also be having a ‘Onesie Day’ and to celebrate Easter there will be and Easter egg hunt and children will get to decorate their own eggs with prizes for the winners.
