The Committee have agreed to absorb some of increase and only raise the cost of the after school session, with the breakfast club remaining at its current price. This ensures that the Base remains affordable and in line with other local out of school clubs.

After School: £7.30 (15p increase)
The increase will take effect after the Easter Break.
