Another Summer holiday is nearly upon us so back by popular demand is my Summer Holiday activity blog! Each Friday (hopefully!😉) I’ll be publishing a blog post that lists all the upcoming activities for the following week. Even though most of your kids are still at school until the middle of next week there’s still a few things starting next week and Saturday 25th you’ll be spoilt for choice for fun family activities. So, without further ado, here’s the first week’s blog. I hope you find it helpful, but if you have any questions, suggestions or things you’d like to see listed here then please don’t hesitate to contact me through FB, twitter or by email.
