FOR the fourteenth year running, Steve and Irene-Maria Campbell have run MAGNETS, a Summer Holiday Club for children from four years and over at La Siesta Church, Calle Granados, opposite the Aquapark Flamingo in La Siesta Urbanisation.

Founded in 2004 with only three sisters in attendance, the Club has grown over the years with well over 250 children having participated.

Every year, the children take part in activities which reflects the name of the Club: Memory verses; Arts and crafts; Games; New people to meet; Eats; Talk on a Bible story; and Singing.

With its summer 2017 season having just finished, Steve and Irene-Maria took some time to reflect:

“The excitement on the children’s faces show how much they enjoy being at MAGNETS

This summer’s theme was Follow Me, looking at the story of Peter the big fisherman and the children enjoyed songs, stories and craft sessions, even decorating cards which were later delivered to residents at the local old people’s home.

“’We look forward to it every year and when you hear of one young lad saying to his grandmother, totally unprompted, ‘Granny, it’s now August and we can go to MAGNETS!’ you can understand why” said Steve.
