"Holiday Fun and great staff team"

(as a parent/guardian),

I am writing on behalf of several mums who have enjoyed a range of events and activities at our local childrens centres over the summer holidays.

We are all fortunate to live within easy distance of our local centres and been impressed that there has been something on to do at most cites over the holiday - this has helped us meet up over the summer. Activitys have been of a high standard and best of all free!

The staff have been very welcoming and have really made an effort with us and our children - we have seen the team in all kind of weathers all over the area but always with a smile on their faces. What we were to discover is that these wonderful ladies are also the ladies that our older children have seen at their school. We had not reaslised it was the same team of workers that did this and it was wonderful to see our children recognised by these workers. It was a plesant shock that a team of facepainters at a park were able to greet children by name and actualy genuinely know these children. There are some stand out staff members in your teams who go the extra mile and we have found out tonight that our children have enjoyed forest working, singing, help at nursery groups to prepare for starting in september. we did not reaslise these people are the same group of people and we did not really get the chance to say thank you. Keep up the good work and we look forward to the new timetable and next holiday events

Dear CatH80

Thank you for taking the time to post your wonderful feedback about our summer activities on this forum, it is very much appreciated.

It is great to hear that you, your family and your friends have had really positive experiences from attending our events and all your children recognised the staff from the work they do with our partner agencies. Receiving comments like yours helps us to plan future events that meet the needs of your community and it is valued by the whole team.

I hope you, your children and your friends enjoy any future activities we deliver and I'm sure your older children will get to work with our staff again as they visit local schools and nursery's.

Please do keep in touch and we are always glad to hear comments that help us support the communities we work in.

Thank you
