Easter holiday camps
There should be no cries of Im bored! in Hertfordshire this Easter school holiday as Barracudas Easter Activity Camps arrive at three venues in the county, available for children aged four to 16. Kids can take part in activities including sports, arts and crafts and mad science from 8am to 6pm. Camps will take place in schools in Barnet, Hemel Hempstead and Hertford. http://www.barracudas.co.uk/


Cracking fun at Willows
Visitors to Willows Farm Village in London Colney can look forward to a choc-o-bloc programme of Easter activity from March 27 to April 18 at an Easter Eggstravaganza.
New to the farm village this Easter is Captain Chickens Egg Dodge an indoor activity for all ages where children will be able to join the Yolks or the Whites teams and dodge the eggs fired from the egg cannons. Very young children can also enjoy a new activity area.
Andrew Wolfe, farmer at Willows, says, We cant wait for Captain Chickens Egg Dodge to open. Im sure our young visitors will have a cracking good time!
The 500-acre farm village will be decorated for the event with bunnies, eggs and spring flowers and there is a jam-packed programme of Easter activities planned.
