Summer 2020 Holiday Activities
This year we had to have a think about how we could keep the kids occupied during the school holiday and have come up with a series of FREE activities that can be done whilst maintaining social distancing.
We have also compiled activity ideas from other places and you will find them all on this page - A one-stop-shop to keep you are your children occupied this year. All are free or low cost.
Parish Council Activities
From Monday 27th July - Pebble Painting
Collect a pebble to take home and decorate, you can keep it or maybe add it to the Rock Snake in Broughton Village or maybe even start up your own Rock Snake! Just make sure you check landowner’s permission first!
