Summer Activities 2019
Days are getting longer and evenings are getting lighter, which means that summer is just around the corner. Time to start thinking about how to keep the children entertained during their six-week break without breaking the bank!
Planning is the key to avoid the “I’m bored” and “can I have” and perhaps we can lend a helping hand. Dunstable Town Council have a programme of free and affordable activities suitable for all the family.
