The clubs are completely free and where possible parents/carers and siblings are able to join in and every child gets a healthy, tasty lunch!
- Monday 29 March- Thursday 1 April 10am-2pm sessions will be held at Leverton Primary School, Waltham Abbey.

Memories to last a lifetime
Activities aim to Increase positive behaviour, social interaction with peers and adults and help with listening and following instructions.
The project also helps participants have a healthy and active lifestyle, improved stamina, strength and flexibility.
One parent, whose 7 & 10-year-old children enjoy the sessions said:
The boys enjoy these sessions because they have fun from the moment they turn up until the minute they leave – each activity is well planned out and they look forward to meeting friends and staff.
They never question what activity is going to be going on as they just accept it’s going to be fun – from horse riding to being a mascot on a football pitch and being with people who want them to experience what the world has to offer – the memories will last a lifetime.
