We have researched more ‘things to do’ and activities for the second half of the summer holiday…
Sand Art at Priory Farm, Nutfield 20th & 27th August
Nici Jordan our Marketing Director recommends Sand Art at Priory Farm.
This looks like great fun – although we haven’t had a chance to visit this activity yet, I have been to a similar sand event at Arreton Barns on the Isle of Wight, my little girl, who is 7 years old LOVES THIS! Priory Farm is just a two hedges and a lane from our Move Revolution Head Office in Nutfield, it is such a beautiful setting we all love Priory Farm.
“Come along and have some lovely refreshments and relax while your children enjoy a Sand Art workshop. Pictures will take roughly 20mins to do and your child can take away their finished art work. Pictures start from £4. All sand art pictures will be covered in a protective sleeve and a hook applied to hang up at home”.

Ross, from our Crawley Office recommends the brand new Castle themed children’s Play and Display activity room at Horsham Museum.
“Bring the kids along and take part in the brand new Activity Trails, play with the games and toys for all ages and dress up like a knight! Its pushchair friendly and has baby changing facilities. Best of all, its free to come in!”

SEA LIFE Brighton Beach Clean – 18th August
Joey also recommends this event for the SEA LIFE centre in Brighton. A great way to get involved and join in cleaning up Brighton beach
Invite your friends, family, colleagues; bring your dogs, cats and children and join us in doing your bit! It’s estimated that there are 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile of the ocean – a statistic which is incredibly easy to prevent by using plastics responsibly and picking up litter when you see it. However many people don’t behave in this way and the problem is getting worse – which is why we’re determined to make this year our most successful for beach cleans. We’re also offering reduced entry to SEA LIFE Brighton for £5 which goes to the SEA LIFE Trust from 3.30pm!
