August 2018 

Play scheme ran for 2 weeks over August. The children participated in a range of activities such as cooking, visiting Cafe Emm, Break dancing, Science activities and Sports. 

JUst Karen and Dance teacher Swifty kindly supported by running some sessions for the children. 

The children also took advantage of the activities provided at Brookside Hub. 

We also said goodbye to Alice our Play Worker. Alice has worked in the play scheme for the past year. She has helped the children in carft activities and has showed them how to bake yummy cakes and cookie dough. We would like to wish Alice the best of luck in her future.
