Holiday Activities

Little Wickets Holiday Activities for Primary School Aged Boys & Girls are going ahead – albeit in a slightly different format to comply with the prevailing Government & ECB Guidance – Morning & Afternoon Sessions (no lunchtime cover).

Tots’ Hot Shots Summer Cricket & Tennis Activity Mornings are under Review but you can Reserve a place and be updated as soon as we have more information

More info and booking information on our summer activities can be found  HERE

Term Time Sessions & After School Clubs

Following the Government’s recent announcement that Community Centres and Sports Facilities can now reopen we are in touch with all our regular venues to  undergo Risk Assessments to ascertain the viability of our regular Term-time 1st & 2nd Innings sessions from September 2020. We are hopeful that they will be able to go ahead, albeit in a slightly different way. Whilst some things may have to change the planned timetable is the same as the Summer Timetable below.  If you are new to Little Wickets and/or would like to register your interest in any of the sessions or would like to be kept up to date with our plans for the Autumn Term please email us here: Little Wickets Autumn Term Update Information
