Activities

We plan activities for our families to access during the holidays. They are a mix of regular seasonal activities and new activities which can vary, so we are always open to suggestions to try something new, which is why we often run polls on our facebook page to decide what our members would like.

The activities are designed for the whole family and include trips out as well as local activities.

Where possible we will seek to get group discounts for families and reduced prices for coach trips.  

Overfarm in October: Located just one mile from Gloucester city centre, there’s lots of farm fun attractions to enjoy – take a tractor ride to our pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin for carving, enjoy a quad train ride around the farm, hunt for scarecrows on our trail, laugh at one of our many daily shows, stroke a scary snake and much more.

As well as all this, there will be fairground and inflatable rides, arts and crafts, face painting and food stalls available at the event
