Fathers Day Event

Who can participate?

The Colin Sure Start Fathers Day event sessions are open to any family registered with Colin Sure Start. To book any event, you must be registered with Colin Sure Start, which means you live in the Colin area and have a child or children under 4. If you want to book on and this applies to you, but are not sure if you are registered, please give us a call on 90601417 and our team can assist you in getting registered if you are eligible. All of the events and activities are aimed at children under age 4. Parents or carers can bring older children to the events, provided they have at least one child under 4, and any older siblings are there to support and understand that the activities will be catering for younger children. Parents or carers remain responsible for their children at the events at all times.

When and where

The Fathers Day event will take place in the Colin Allotments on Saturday, 15th of June, from 11 am - 2pm


The events will include a range of outdoor activities - sensory play, arts and crafts, nature hunts and more. The activities will aim to support all abilities and ages from 0-4. There will be a live Amazon Jungle reptile show where children can see and interact with some real live creepy crawlies! Parents or carers are responsible for their children at all times during the events so you attend with them and full participation is encouraged! There will also be a free BBQ with burgers and sausages and all the trimmings. A baby area will be set up at all events for mums/dads with newborns, and there will be toilets and changing facilities provided at all venues.


We are using our online booking system for Fathers Day Event - just follow the button below once the booking is live. You only need to make one booking per family.


Once you have booked on to an event successfully, an email will be sent to the address you provide to confirm your booking. Our staff will also contact you a few days in advance of any event you have booked on to by phone just to confirm everything and run through any details with you. If for any reason you are no longer able to attend an event that you have booked on, there is a link on the confirmation email to 'cancel your booking' - if we could ask that you please cancel if unable to attend as this will allow another family to take up the place. Many thanks
