Laughing Giraffe Holiday Club

Laughing Giraffe in Roecliffe, near Boroughbridge, is hosting an incredible holiday club full of summer fun! It takes places in their soft play centre so there will be plenty of free play alongside team games and time trials – often involving prizes! If kids need a break from being active, there are loads of arts and crafts, boardgames, books and jigsaws to get involved with. There’s also going to be two exciting days of cake decorating and pizza making. Look forward to visits from magicians, face-painters, foam clay makers and more!


Summer FunFest

Ripon Together will be hosting their Summer FunFest! There will be many outdoor, active events but when the young people want to work on their creative skills, there will be space for crafts and more mindful projects.  Qualified and experienced coaches will be around to support and guide young people with cricket, rounders, football, croquet, tennis, crazy golf, circus skills, sumo wrestling, tug of war and a giant inflatable obstacle course. Free drinks, healthy snacks and free lunches are available for participants.
