2017 National Rotary KidsOut Day

The 2017 National Rotary KidsOut Day will take place on Wednesday the 14th of June….This is a free day out to Wicksteed Park for Special Needs Children and their families. This is a self-drive activity but please note it is a school day and it is your responsibility to get permission from your child’s school.
Each year we gather a number of families together who enjoy a free day on the rides. This is provided for us by the Northampton West Rotary Club. T-shirts are provided on the day as your entry.
