The holidays are here again (Hurrah!) and we as parents are left with the daunting task of how to entertain, 2, 3 or more small people for 2 weeks! Don’t get me wrong, Dearest Child No.2 of mine would gladly sit and watch Paw Patrol for 2 weeks straight, but I don’t think that would be the best use of the time!

With that in mine – and a family friendly budget! – I’ve put together all the goings on this Easter in Norwich, Great Yarmouth & The local area!
