The kids are barely in school over the coming weeks and with Spring weather bringing brighter days, there’s lots of fun to be had on the Wirral, and loads of it is free too. From farmyard activities, pocket money priced cinema tickets, crafts galore and plenty of family fresh air fun to be had, there’s something for everyone and to suit every budget.
