Our Upcoming Events


As government regulations change we will continue to implement measures to maximise the safety of everyone in our community. This means that staff will continue to use masks and sanitisers for all our physical events over the summer.  Children will still not need to wear masks at our events but we encourage the use of regular hand sanitising.
