Catch up on our summer 2020 activities

We took our PlayDaze summer activities online last summer, as we weren’t able to deliver the programme in a way that was safe for all. We provided arts and crafts, quizzes, discos and more to keep children busy.

We collected all the videos of our online summer activities in a playlist on our YouTube channel, so you can catch up on any you missed.
