What’s On Weekend 5th-7th May South East

It’s finally looking like we may well get a dry, sunny bank holiday weekend. Hooray! We are really looking forward to seeing the Women’S FA  Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.  It promises to be an exciting afternoon.  The kids are keen to do a local fun run at the weekend. I’m a little dubious as to how much actual running will be involved, but we’ll see!
