October Half Term is Here

Conor Fletcher

October Half Term is finally upon us, school takes a break and St Ives takes on the familiar buzz of the school holidays, but as we welcome back everyone before the winter holidays the question on people's minds is what is to do during the half term week? There's so much taking place far and wide in the county from days out at the Eden Project to wonderful afternoons crafting chocolate, and who doesn't like that. So as we approach the week in question here's a list of what's on offer for everyone who are here to enjoy St Ives this October Half Term.

What's on this October Half Term
