We are plannig on taking DD very soon, and have been looking at the web site. Thought it might make a fun meet up - maybe in early summer - if others are interested???

Website here

If there are more than 10 children we could even get a group discount price.

It is in Halifax, accessible by car nd bus - and is next to to the railway station too.

Not been for years but remember it being great.

Anyone think they might be interested?

Hey Hula! How you doing??

Eureka is fab - we took our Y3's for their trip in November and it was wonderful. Would love to come with my 2 but can only do it in the school hols or on an inset day.

Your DD will love it I know!!!!

BUMP for week day users.

WedgiesMum Tue 22-Mar-05 21:05:32

Hey gingerbear how you doing? Don't get on much and have had connection problems. Easter hols soon so will be on a bit more!!!

I have one more inset day left which is 6 June.

Don't mind a weekend but can't do 8 May or 11 June (and neither can you Hula IYSWIM ) because of birthday festivities.

All well here although DS left home today because I am always mean.....Going to see school on Thurs about the ed psych report so maybe will get some good news there (ha!)
