With the escalating COVID-19 situation, we have decided to cancel the remaining sessions of Devonport & Bayswater Summer Fun Preschool Play and Kids Athletics.
It is our intention to run a celebratory Kids Athletics session and Summer Fun Preschool Play sessions when it is safe to do so again – hopefully later in the year. We will keep you informed.
