Interaktive Playschemes

As well as the onsite activities, there are a number of projects organised out in the community. These include pizza making, 10 pin bowling, and horse riding at Epsom Riding for the Disabled Association (ERDA). The older groups have enjoyed Companion Cycling in Bushy Park, and visits to Sandown Park Race Course and Tilgate Park and Nature Centre. All the children take part in an athletics day during the summer session, where they are split into groups for track and field activities – it is structured as a fun day rather than a sporting challenge
