Thomas adored everyday at FizzBug’s, he didn’t tell me much after the day but was so happy and just so excited to return every other day. Really appreciated the convince of drop off when it was raining , you waited at gate so we didn’t have to unload all our children. (twins and a 2yr old) Siobhan Pollard

I was so grateful that Fizzbug was running over the summer and we really appreciated all the hard work that had gone into the social distancing and bubbles. My daughters really loved Fizzbug and enjoyed the variety of activities and meeting new children. Samantha Sawyer

Fizzbugs put on an amazing set up this year under very challenging circumstances. They excelled themselves with the look and feel of the camp making it look like a mini festival. I rather fancied going myself! Thanks so much to all of you for making the summer months easier to work whilst keeping the children entertained and doing something different Vicky Ellis

Amazing organisational skills of the crew at Fizzbugs meant my son had a great time despite the current restrictions in place. It’s also great to see such efforts being made to use sustainable products. Melanie McWilliams

We haven’t been to Fizzbug before and didn’t really know what to expect especially in the current climate. From the moment we arrived we were impressed and our girls were excited-and it didn’t disappoint! Our girls have been to several holiday clubs and this definitely a favourite and we will be coming back! Thank you 😊 Karen Standen

Our child really enjoyed his summer at fizzbugs. It was very well organised despite the new measures that needed to be implemented. Would not hesitate to use Fizzbug again. Christina Dodd
