Trips for families this summer

We have been working on a Family Trips schedule for the summer holidays! There are some firm favourites as well as some new activities, which members can book onto. Lots of members have told us that they their children are unsure about returning to busy, crowded places.  It has been a year of cancellations and disappointment for many.  To make our trips as stress-free as possible, we are running local trips with tried and trusted venues and a strong preference for exclusive use or outdoor venues. Here are the plans so far!

Allsorts has exclusive use of the large accessible teaching pool and exciting Splash Pad play zone at Leisure at Cheltenham – enjoy the space without the crowds.
