Charlotte Thompson, Manager at Kids Play Childcare Activity Day Camps and After School Clubs at Long Meadow School. She said: “To be part of this fantastic scheme is exciting enough, but to actually be the ones to reach the milestone of the 900th Club is the icing on the cake.
“We are always looking for different ways to get children more active and knowledgeable about healthy living and this is a great opportunity to enhance what we already do at Kids Play Childcare. We can’t wait to get going and more than anyone, I know the children are going to absolutely love it.”
