It's the school holidays and that can only mean one thing - time for Little Skippers! 

Join us during the summer holidays and enjoy some fun-filled crafts. Activities will run every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday throughout the summer. 
From the 25th July to 10th August our theme is 'Save our Oceans'. Crafts include making a ribbon weave fish and a handprint jellyfish.
From the 15th August to 31st August our theme is 'Garden Wildlife'. Plant a sunflower seed or paint a clay bug! 
Children can enjoy some quiet in our book corner where they can discover a prehistoric world or what lies beneath our streets. Our storytelling volunteers will be sharing some books including 'Peter's Pebbles', 'Somebody swallowed Stanley' and 'Bee my Friend'. 
Whether your little skippers enjoy craft, building blocks, stories dressing up or discovering a small world, there is lots to enjoy at Little Skipper's Holiday Activities. 
Don't forget our Little Skipper's Explorer park is open every day of the holidays, along with our Little Skipper's Wildlife trail, pick a free trail booklet from the foyer. And if you are going on a boat trip, don't forget to grab a Little Skipper's Fossil Trail
