Holiday Activities 2011 

Kids clubs and supervised activities
With six weeks off in the summer it's a great time to be a kid. But maybe not so much fun if you're a parent!
With work commitments and everything else to do it can be tricky keeping the little ones happy and surpervised. And sometimes we all just need a break as well.
Here we've come up with a few ideas for children's activities that are supervised such as kids holiday clubs and STFC football training days.
Most do require registration beforehand, so it pays to book early.
