This is a concessionary leisure card scheme which gives savings of 30% off the full adult peak rate for a range of activities at swimming pools, sports centres and other Cheshire East leisure facilities with the exception of Holmes Chapel Community Centre. If families are looking for things to do over the summer thinking of going swimming it may be worth them getting an Options Card for their child or themselves if they are eligible to help save some money.

Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust
Cheshire Carer’s Trust are thrilled to be able to hold a family fun event again this summer!
This event is for all children with additional needs and their families and siblings to enjoy.
There will be craft activities, a bouncy castle, sensory disco dome, indoor soft play, outdoor sports activities and more.
The bar will be open for parents to purchase drinks. You are invited to bring a packed lunch/snacks if you like.
Spaces will be limited as although social distancing is no longer in place we want everyone to feel comfortable and understand that it can be quite overwhelming to be in large groups again.
