Councillor Patricia Walker, cabinet member for children and young people, said: “We have lots on offer for our youngest residents this half term. Many events are free, such as those in our libraries and in Walpole Park, and where there are charges, we have tried to keep them as low as possible. Whatever the weather, there’s something for everyone, young and old.”
All children must be accompanied by an adult and booking is essential for Walpole Park. Places can be reserved by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 8825 8974.
