HABS Holiday Activity Days

    Eating marshmallowsDance 2toasting marshmallows girls

We are delighted to support Hoddesdon and Broxbourne Settings Family Support Team with a grant which has allowed HABS to offer children from our area some special activity days over the Easter School break. The days included Fun Dancing Days where children learned to combine a range of dance styles, and Wild in the Woods where den building and bug hunting was followed up by fire building and marsh mallow toasting!

It was great to receive letters from some of the families who were able to take up this opportunity, including these from Kayleigh and Zadie.

Find out more about the support that HABS can offer at their website.
