Parents Week A3 Poster 1
Colin Neighbourhood Partnership has teamed up with local organisations once again to bring the Colin community lots of family friendly activities to mark National Parents Week this October.

The Parents Week in Colin programme provides local parents with lots of fun opportunities to spend quality time with their kids.  It also comes at a perfect time as many children are off school for mid-term.  Many events during Parents Week in Colin are free so there’s no excuse to gather the kids for some family fun!

 

Events include family fun days, tooth fairy events, storytelling, pumpkin carving and Halloween events for all the family!  Full programme detailed below.  Alternatively, you can download our programme booklet HERE.  

 

For updates on events keep an eye on this website or Colin Neighbourhood Partnership’s social media pages.  Full booking details are listed under each event.  However, if you have any questions regarding any of the events listed in this programme contact Colin Neighbourhood Partnership on 028 90623813.
