Chocks Away .. this half term

Half term is very nearly upon us =O and as always Empathy will be Out and About. As the weather can be a bit unkind at this time of year we have decided to take advantage of one of the regions fab all weather attractions and will be visiting Cosford Air Museum on Weds 22nd Feb.

We are keeping this one low key and low cost. We therefore are not providing transport, to enable you to join us for as much or as little of the session as you like.

The playleaders will meet families at 10.30 am and we will enjoy the Museum together. There are additional activities on site which families are free to pay for independently and enjoy as they wish.

Car Parking is on site at a cost of £4 / day and whilst there is a cafe, we’d encourage families to bring a picnic so that we can all eat together.

Tickets are just £5/ family and you must book your family on to the activity here
