Sibling Club

Description

The children provide a wish-list - a list of the activities they would like to do.  Cheshire Buddies then put together a programme of activities based upon their ideas.  For example: trampolining, bowling, Chill Factor, splash landings, cycling, trips to the beach, Blackpool, crab fishing.
