During the summer holidays, at HOPS we try and make the days exciting and enjoyable.

There had been a number of requests for animals, so this year we had a visit from Gemma’s Farm.

It was a lovely summer day and the children enjoyed getting up close with the animals.

There were so many lovely photos that you will find 3 posts.

Come rain or shine

Posted in 2016, Uncategorized | Comments Off

The HOPS summer activity days are well under way.

The British summer has been its usual mixture of rain and sun shine.

However no matter what the weather holds, there is always fun at HOPS both in doors and out.
