The Year-end holidays are all about spending time together as a family. Whether it’s outdoor or indoor fun, make the most of your time with the kids, because they grow up too fast.


If you’ve not been able to take time off work this holiday, take heart that the weekend is just around the corner. Enjoy it to the max, but leave the planning to us.


Spend your day getting crafty with hands-on arts and gardening sessions or cool down at a water-play area. We even have a free rollerblading class for the entire family at East Coast Park.
