Running Tuesday to Fridays over the school summer holidays, from Tuesday 2nd July until Friday 9 August 2024, between 9.30am - 2.30pm, we’re inviting children and their families to drop into the Platform Café to sit in and enjoy a free breakfast & lunch.  Drop in - no need to book and food is offered on a first come, first served basis whilst stocks last. Please note the club doesn't run on Mondays or weekends.

We’ll have a selection of healthy, filling and delicious food on offer – with vegan and gluten free options.
