Family Days Out Cheshire East – Drop In (No Need to Book)
It’s fantastic to be able to get out and about with the family, and to see our much loved local businesses opening their doors once again!
Most places currently need to be prebooked – which might mean you’re left at a loose end if you haven’t got yourself sorted in time! With this in mind, we’ve pulled together these ideas for local days out which don’t need to be prebooked.
Please bear in mind that social distancing restrictions still apply and many of these places may be busy

⭐️Melody Mouse, Holmes Chapel, Wilmslow and Sandbach
Ok so not a day out as such but we know a lot of Mumblers who don’t want to, or can’t commit to a full term of classes, are struggling whilst many of our local playgroups aren’t running. Melody Mouse classes offer a Pay as you Go option and you can book onto a class right up to an hour before it starts! (space permitting).
Melody Mouse classes are mixed age classes so they’re great for families with more than one little one at home and include Music, crafts and a cuppa for the grown ups – perfect! For more information click here.
