Resources for staying in
In these difficult times, we thought it might be useful to have one place where there were details of activities you can do whilst staying isolated / distancing from others.
These are all external sites / resources, so we cannot guarantee how good they are, but worth checking them out. Please also bear internet safety in mind – details HERE
