Fun for families over the Easter holidays

There's a wide range of activities on offer for children during the Easter holidays in Babergh and Mid Suffolk.

Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils are helping to support families this Easter by providing children and young people with a great selection of holiday activities.

From dance camps to soccer schools, adventure days to arts and crafts, there’s something for every child to enjoy. There’s also activities for the whole family to get involved with, such as cooking in the park classes and family swim sessions.

Activities are running from Friday, 29 March to Friday, 12 April as part of the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme, coordinated by Suffolk County Council and delivered locally by Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils and partners. 

Free places are reserved for those who receive free school meals or those otherwise in need, but most sessions are also available to be booked for a small fee.

Cllr Deborah Saw, cabinet member for people and place at Babergh District Council, said:

“The HAF programme gives young people an opportunity to try something new, develop skills and take part in activities which may not have been available to them otherwise.

“Days out can be incredibly expensive, and with everyone watching their spending at the moment, it’s a fantastic opportunity for children and their families to make memories without breaking the bank.”

Cllr Tim Weller, cabinet member for environment, culture and wellbeing at Mid Suffolk District Council, said:

“This Easter, we have a great selection of activities on offer, both indoor and outdoor. I would encourage all families in our district to take a look at what is available and get involved.

“None of this would be possible without the work of our partners and activity providers, so I’d like to thank them all once again for their dedication to supporting the HAF programme.”

Families of eligible children can select their activities through the new booking system, Eequ. A full timetable of events, along with additional information, will also be published on the Babergh District Council and Mid Suffolk District Council websites.
