Activities for families
We are beginning to plan some activities again. This has been very disrupted due to covid and because of the community room building delay.
We also ran family play sessions at school in the first couple of weeks of the holiday.
Across the city there are loads of opportunities for families - many are free - see the website for details... https://www.yourholidayhubbristol.co.uk/
Unfortunately our family trip to We the Curious (Bristol's fab science centre) was cancelled after a fire damaged their building. We will rebook the trip as soon as they reopen - if you would like a refund in the meantime please email friends and we will sort this out.
Family swims were very popular this year and we have already booked dates for 2023. We know the 6pm slot is not great for everybody, but it is the only time you can book the pool for your exclusive use. Friends pay £200 for each swim, so we get grant funding to cover most of cost. And school staff kindly give up their time to help out! These Saturday swims are for Hannah More families only. Under 8s must have a parent in the water with them. Read the guidelines here.
2023 dates are: 13 and 20 May; 10th and 24th June; 8th and 15th July.
Our adult community history project linked to the SS Great Britain has now completed. Parents researched ways to make this wonderful Bristol attraction more accessible for families and more relevant to our community. They also helped to bust some myths - did you know for example that the SS Great Britain was a passenger ship and a cargo boat - but never had any links to the slave trade (it was built a generation after!)?

Community room update
The extension to the community room is delayed, but once complete we will have a creche room and a training room. We already have a cooking project and Stress Busting ready to run in this new space. We can't wait!
Friends of Hannah More can still fund Bikeability courses for children at the Family Cycling Centre in Hengrove; you would need to make your own way there. Our cycling project last year was lovely - read about this here.
Help and support
There are various Parenting courses running across the city; we will post dates as soon as we have any.
