5 Fantastic weeks of Free Fun started off with a bang when instead of the expected 6-8 children 22 turned up! We were all surprised and everyone had lots of fun. This high turnout continued for the rest of the summer and everyone really enjoyed their time including the staff. After the success of the summer scheme we have decided to create rhyme time which will take place Thursdays 1.20-2.30 pm we hope we can all have as much fun in these sessions as we did during the summer.
