Half term fun for families in Babergh and Mid Suffolk

A healthy selection of half term activities is on offer for children across the districts.

A healthy selection of half term activities is on offer for children across Babergh and Mid Suffolk as the district councils help to support families during the school break.

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

Activities are running from Tuesday, 28 May to Friday, 31 May, as part of a programme funded and coordinated by the district councils.

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. Lunch is included by most, but not all, activity providers, so parents and carers will need to check what their child needs to bring ahead of time.

Cllr Tim Weller, cabinet member for environment, culture and wellbeing at Mid Suffolk District Council, said: “This council-funded programme will once again be providing Mid Suffolk’s young people with the opportunity to try something new and get active this half term.

“Days out can be expensive, but by taking part in some of the activities on offer, children and their families can make memories without breaking the bank.”
Cllr Deborah Saw, cabinet member for people and place at Babergh District Council, said: “I’d like to thank our partners and activity providers across Babergh for all the work they do to create opportunities for young people during the school breaks.

“Because of them, we are able to offer a wonderful range of activities this half term which I hope will excite young people and bring peace of mind to their parents.”

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