February half term always comes as a bit of a relief. Spring is nearly in sight, and although the weather can still be cold and changeable there is a bit more light in the sky.
There are plenty of events for all the family listed on our February events in Essex page
Some of the events being held include:
Nature Club event on Saturday 15th February
Secret Story Walk at Thornden Country park for 15th – 23rd February
