As it will be a long day, we thought that it'd be best to book a meal before the gala starts as we imagine our children will be very hungry by 4pm being swimmers and all!
We have managed to book 3 tables for 10 people at Pizza Hut (10 mins walk away from Ponds Forge Leisure Centre) for 3.45pm. The kids menu is £3.99 per head (main meal (pizza, pasta or chicken strips) and a drink), so we would like to ask that all children coming along without an adult bring along at least £5.00 spending money for their food. We anticipate that an adults meal (sharing large pizzas) would cost around £7 a head.
I will collect the food money for the kids travelling without their parents at Piccadilly and keep it safe! If you have any problems with this arrangement please let me know.
We will provide a soft drink for all children attending and some snacks for the train.
