Plans and inclusive activity ideas for the bank holiday weekend

Hurray!  It's looking like we have a much longed-for, sunny bank holiday weekend coming up, so what do you have planned?  


A daisy sat in the sunshine

Let's hope I haven't just Michael Fish-ed the upcoming weather  :D but I thought this would be a nice space to share with each other, what you will be up to and any ideas for inclusive activities to try out.

Personally, I need to make a start on taming my out of control gardens.  My front hedge is getting ever-difficult for the postman to walk past (think Krypton Factor) and my rockery is more like a jungle!  As such, I will be Mrs Green Fingers, doing bits and bobs, with many cups of tea to hand.

Accessible activity ideas

If you are stuck as to what to do this weekend, then perhaps some of these ideas might tickle your fancy.  
Can you add anymore to the list?

What will you be doing?

I hope whatever you are up to, you enjoy it.  Be it adrenaline fuelled, seeing family or a marathon viewing session of your latest box-set of choice!  Feel free to let us know in the comments what you have planned :)

    On bank holiday Monday we will just be relaxing in the garden if the weather forecast is right.
    But on Sunday we are seeing our daughter and grandson for the first time since August.

    We have some nice food in, including meat for BBQs, along with ingredients to make cocktails so hopefully the weather will be OK!

    According to the weather forecast today Sunday Monday and Tuesday will be sunny and 21 degrees Saturday won't be quite as good but still warm.

    I’ve had an afternoon sitting in the garden. Tomorrow, I’ve been invited to a friends. Monday, I’ll be flaked out in front of TV!

    For all those seeing relatives they haven’t seen in a while, have lots of fun.
    Everyone else, enjoy the sunshine, box sets. Take pleasure in whatever you choose to do🙂

    Monday going out to lunch with a friend 1st time  since before the 1st lockdown.  I have been out very little since the beginning of the pandemic. Feeling very nervous.

    It's understandable that you're nervous, but I'm sure everything will go just fine. Are you going anywhere nice for lunch?
