What to do in half term with young children without costing the earth?
Sometimes it's tempting to succumb to the easy solutions - which
usually involve using lots of carbon and spending lots of money. But yesterday I took our two youngest children (3 and 6) to Bristol for the day. We travelled by train and then got a bus to Clifton Suspension Bridge, where we ate our packed lunch and got the wobbles looking over the edge of the bridge...
Then we popped in to the Occupy Bristol encampment on College Green. There were people drumming, playing guitars, and even someone organising children's craft activities!
