Visitor feedback of Wacky Wednesday

"My husband took our three year old granddaughter along to the Seaside Special event for under 5's. Expectations for the event were high and they were not disappointed. The various craft activities were as always well structured and resourced. The stories, songs and additional activities were characteristically well planned, appropriate and engaging. They were very pleased that they'd booked early."
