I have just returned from the Dads Club at my local Children’s Centre, this runs from 10-12 every Saturday and has a whole host of activities for the kids and also allows you to sit down and have a coffee and natter with the other dads.
Whilst down there I took a look at some of the other things they did and was surprised by the amount of events they had on and the variety, from dads clubs, after school clubs, any number of sports clubs, fitness clubs for adults as well as offering a whole host of counselling and advisory services. Everything offered was either free or at a very reasonable price. Most centres also have a café serving healthy and reasonably priced food.
So if you haven’t already, look up your local children’s centre, the best place for this is your local authority web site, you’ll be surprised what they have on offer.
