Memories of Holiday Club......



This summer's Holiday Club was based around the Olympics - the two days of fun-packed activities were taking place at the same time as athletes were 'going for gold' in Tokyo.

As well as the usual games, crafts, challenges, stories and songs, there were some rather unusual Olympic competitors who arrived to show off their skills.  Who knew that there was a horse well practised in sport of Dressage in the village?  

Despite the torrential rain at lunch-time on the last day - taking the place of the usual water-fight and meaning that everyone went home thoroughly soaked - a good time was had by all.
