Inclusive Holiday Playscheme – Summer 2021

Summer 2021 Whippersnappers will be bringing back our inclusive play scheme at Brockwell lido for up to 15 children a day. This play scheme will run from Mon 2nd Aug to Fri 13th Aug. The playscheme will cost £30 a day from 10 am to 5 pm with an additional £5 an hour if your child needs to attend from 9 am or finish at 6 pm. We do sometimes ask parents for a contribution to trips out when we take children on special trips like Go Karting or visiting the theatre.
