The Suffolk Food Hall

As well as monthly activities like the Children's Art Farm Foundation, The Cooking Club workshops and The Outrageous Cake Company Kids Club; they are hosting the annual Halloween party on Wednesday 30th October from 3.30-5.30pm in the ‘haunted' cubbyholes of the Food Hall. The party will involve pumpkin carving and a ghost hunt, to name a few activities, and includes tea. If you can't make the party the ghastly sheds are open during the half term holiday with Halloween crafts, but only for the bravest of children!
Summer 2013 welcomed the opening of a new Home & Garden area at the Food Hall, which they continue to celebrate with a Bulb Planting Workshop for children who want to get creative without ruining your own flower beds. The workshop is on Saturday 2nd November and suitable for children of all ages. Children will be provided with all the materials to  take home a basket of newly planted bulbs to care for and watch grow; a great Christmas present idea.
The Food Hall also has lots for the all-important parents too; The Cookhouse restaurant serves everything from breakfast to high tea, and supper (Friday & Saturday evenings only), a separate Café serves light snacks whilst children enjoying the amazing (free) Jumping Pillow, and you can do your weekly shop at the same time!
For more information and to book visit or call Gemma Barley 01473 786 616

Sarah from Xercise4Less gives Raring2go! some great ideas for family fun to keep fit and healthy. Don't get stuck indoors just because it is winter. Dark mornings, cold blustery evenings and it seems we would all rather reach for our duvet than even contemplate heading outdoors to get active! Remember it’s only cold when you’re standing still…
