Nicola from the Widehorizons Environment Centre in Eltham sent me details of their free half-term events for children. As there are a maximum of 30 children per session it is essential to book. They can be contacted by ‘phone on 0208 294 8161 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult. The activities take place on Monday and Tuesday:
