“It is lovely to be back in the summer months, being outdoors and enoying the holidays,” said Councillor Norman Webster, Cabinet Member for Community.

“As the school holidays arrive so brings the task of finding things to do with younger children. These free Play Day events vist many of the communities of our district, with a huge variety of activities to try. We are also looking forward to the return of the summer Skatefests and can’t wait to see everyone enjoying themselves.”
