Young families have been reaping the rewards of spending quality time together thanks to a new course.

During the summer break families with youngsters aged five to eight have attended eight sessions, each lasting 21/2 hours.

Activities included sing alongs, playing games, learning about nutrition and meeting with local PCSOs.

It is the first programme of its kind in Dacorum and is part of the award-winning Family and Schools Together scheme run by Save the Children.

Partnership development officer for Dacorum schools, Mike Short, said: “One of the main aims of the programme is that it is sustainable so the parents are encouraged to continue it afterwards.”
