Councillor Alison Bennett, Deputy Leader of Mid Sussex District Council, shared: “I am delighted that we’ll be hosting another three Play Day events this October half term. It was fantastic to see so many families enjoying themselves at our summer events and I am grateful to our providers who work so hard to create engaging activities for our community.”
