Well, it’s official, our bubble has burst for both boys which means summer holidays have begun already! I was feeling on the back foot a bit for activities and plans for the summer but then I got some exciting news!

Parents and carers looking for ways to keep their children entertained this summer should look no further than Active East Riding #SchoolsOut.

This year’s #SchoolsOut programme will be delivered online, packed with ideas and activities to help keep children of all abilities active during the six-week summer holidays. This means that even if we all experience a summer of on-off isolation pings, we won’t be without plenty of activities to occupy our little ones.

For parents and carers of children with a disability, there will also be a number of activities they too can take part in.
