We are experiencing technical difficulties with our Council and committee pages.
We are working to resolve this urgently. Thank you for your patience.
Families fearing scary childcare costs this Halloween half-term are being given a helping hand.
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils are offering a range of holiday activities to keep youngsters active and entertained over the school holiday.
From holiday camps to dance classes, football matches to arts and crafts, there’s something for every child to enjoy.
Activities will run from Monday 23 October to Friday 27 October.
The programme includes activities for children of all ages, as well as offering days out for the whole family, such as cooking classes in the park and swim sessions.
Thanks to funding from Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils, there are free places on the October half term activities programme.
These are available to youngsters who receive free school meals or those otherwise in need. They can be booked directly through the activity providers.
However, everyone can benefit from subsidised sessions – again booked directly with the organisers.
