To coincide with National Playday 2013 We are planning ahead for warmer weathers (hopeful) and organising a big picnic in Stanley Park, nibbles and cake for the adults and snacks and juice for the children will be provided.

As it is National Playday there will be a lot of additional free activities in the park including boats, mini golf, face painting, football shoot out, dance displays and lot's more. Further to the free activities there is the option to pay £2 and have unlimitied use of park facilities including, trampalines, pitch 'n' put, boats, electric cars, trains, bouncy castles and inflatable slides.

If you would be interested in joining us please let us know.
