It's an odd thing but although this is Easter weekend we haven't yet started the Easter holiday events for children. We're sort-of starting them today with a few more over the next few weeks.
For reasons only understood by school heads and education committees there is no single school holiday period anywhere within 80 miles radius. Locally, half the schools in the area ended winter term on Thursday, most of the rest will be ending the term at the end of next and two will be dragging it on to 4th April.
On top of this we've got three independent schools which set their own term times and God alone knows when they're having their Easter holidays.
