Children and Families

We run childrens activities during weekends and school
holidays. These give the children an opportunity to make friends and join in with fun days out subsidised by Somerset Sight.
These activities include things such as:

Farm visits
Pizza making
Pantomime trips
Outdoor activities

We also run parent support groups with speakers and topical meetings.
