Royal Air Force Museum Cosford
Model-Making Half Term
Monday 17th to Friday 21st February
11.00am to 3.00pm £3.00 per person
If you’re looking for something exciting to entertain the children this February Half Term, the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford is inviting families to participate in a fun model making activity. Taking place from Monday 17th to Friday 21st February, visitors will have the opportunity to build either an Airfix 1:72 Sopwith Pup or an Airfix 1:72 Albatros.
Models will be built alongside the full sized aircraft on display at the Museum in a communal and fun atmosphere. You don’t have to be a skilled modeller to take part as staff will be there to lend a hand and to ensure visitors get the most from their modelling. Plus, if you need a little inspiration as to how to paint your model Spitfire, sessions will be taking place next to the famous 1:1 scale model Spitfire built by James May for the BBC Toy Stories series.
The model making activity will be taking place in the Museum’s Hangar 1 and sessions will run from 11.00am to 3.00pm each day. Participation is just £3.00 per person and all materials including glue, paints and brushes will be provided by the Museum. Tickets are available on the day from the Admissions Desk.
Please Note: The Airfix activity is not suitable for children under the age of 3. Children will need to be supervised by an adult and may require assistance with the model making.

Lichfield at Half-Term
Half term holiday fun
From holiday clubs and football offers, to swimming fun sessions and coaching courses, Lichfield District Council’s Holiday Fun programme is packed with plenty of energetic activities to keep young people active and entertained.
In the lead up to the 2014 February half term, which takes place across Staffordshire from Monday 17 to Friday 21 February, the council has launched an online calendar of its holiday activities, to make searching for fun things to do over the school break really easy.
The holiday calendar is available at http://www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/holidayfun. It lists the activities in date order and gives information, such as the times, what the activity involves and booking information, all in one place.
The council also produces a Holiday Fun e-newsletter that it sends to leisure centre users. This lists all the holiday activities on offer. To sign up to get this free newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Councillor Andrew Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said:
“We’ve got an exciting programme of activities this February half term, including swimming lessons, golf, holiday clubs, junior triathlon training and much more. Places book up fast, so take a look at http://www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/holidayfun to see what’s on offer.”
Lichfield District Council’s Holiday Fun programme is running at venues across the district, including Burntwood Leisure Centre, Friary Grange Leisure Centre, King Edward VI Leisure Centre and Beacon Park.
