Places like this are a saviour for summer holiday day care

COMMENT: Increasing awareness of what we eat is crucial

Have your say

All hail Fairthorne Manor in Botley which has, once again, exhausted my children completely during the day and delivered them home on a bus.

I love that place, it’s action, adventure and also where I spent happy days doing much the same thing as a child (although I think the safety gear is a little more up-to-date than what I remember).

This time my son undertook a CSI week and came home able to fingerprint, cast thumbs (not sure why) and even got a forensic investigative suit (finding it in the depths of his room, however, will take a full investigation in its own right).

As holiday day care goes, it’s right up there with the best – but sadly they won’t give me a discount off next year for saying so.
