Back to school for lessons in being an epic dad
It was back to school for 19 dads at the first EPIC Dads event at West Row Academy.
EPIC stands for Encourager, Provider, Instructor, Carer, which the charity says are four key roles of a father-figure.
Richard Keeble who is the EPIC Dad’s community leader said:“We want to celebrate the key role that dads and male carers have in families and communities and encourage the father-child relationship through fun clubs, parenting courses and family activities.”
The dads took part in activities with their children, including Easter crafts and games.
