The new term at Broke Hall Primary School was set to start on Monday, but when builders working on improvements found some asbestos last week, senior staff were forced to tell parents that the school could not be opened until September 12.

Now, to help parents left with arranging child care at short notice, Inspire Suffolk has laid on extra holiday club sessions for the children to enjoy sports activities.

The clubs will run Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am-3pm, and will feature sessions in football, tennis and athletics among others.

Inspire Suffolk CEO Terry Baxter said: “We saw the news that Broke Hall had got the issue with asbestos and clearly for parents trying to get child care at short notice is quite difficult.

“We know our sessions have been well taken up by parents throughout the summer, so we thought let’s try and offer something for them.”

The sessions are £10 per day, with all money above the running costs going to Inspire’s charitable activities.
