Summer Holiday Links and Ideas

The long summer holiday is almost here, and some parents may be wondering about the kinds of activities available to keep children entertained, amused and occupied.

Bannockburn is running its own Summer Play Scheme this year, which many of the children will be attending. If you haven't been allocated a place there are lots of alternatives around the Local Area.

The first place to look is here, at the Greenwich Local Offer website, which has links to things to do in the borough.

Home Start Greenwich runs lots of trips and events over the summer, and information can be found here in the 'Activities & Events' section. A timetable for each of their centres can be accessed here.

For older children who are interested in Theatre and Performance, Greenwich and Lewisham's Young People's Theatre has a programme of summer workshops which you can view here.

Links to other local summer play-schemes are listed here.

Hope everyone has a lovely summer and if you're staying at home, then here is a great list of Boredom Buster activities ...

But remember, it is also ok for children to (occasionally) experience boredom - it's a great way to let their minds wander, and to encourage their creativity.
