Keeping the kids busy during the holidays isn't always easy, but a website run by a Bawburgh mum is helping parents and their children find things to do in Norfolk.


Finding stuff to do during the school holidays isn't always easy, but one mum's website is giving families a helping hand in Norfolk.

Fiona Anthony, from Bawburgh, near Norwich, was persuaded by her friends to set up the website, Info4Families, when they noticed she always knew what events were happening in the county.

"I am always looking for things to keep my children occupied and Norfolk has such a lot going on," she said.

"But I found it quite difficult to get information about events and activities for children and families, as there was no central information point and it would often involve collecting leaflets and checking notice boards at different venues.

"So I decided to set up a website which would allow people to find things to do, without leaving home," she added.

Fiona was also concerned that some events she had booked had to be cancelled because not enough people wanted to go.

"It is a real shame that some parents can’t find the events and some event organisers don’t get the numbers they need. I want to help bring the two together," said Fiona.

The website gives details on regular, one-off and free events, and includes activities which children can do on their own or with the family.

Parents can look for activities by category and by age so that they can find events suitable for their children’s interests and needs.

The site also links to local places of interest, such as libraries, museums and cinemas.
