Summer's here and that means sun, sea and 100 FSS!

We kick-off summertime with the Summer Bash on June 15 when we mark the beginning of the summer holiday with a carnival and a food truck rally. It'll be a treat for all the family with face painting, pony rides and a free fun fair! Arrive early to beat the queues.

Wondering what to do with your little ones over the summer break? Take a trip to RAF Mildenhall's Library and participate in the annual Summer Reading Program - have fun reading books and winning prizes!

If you want to get out and about in the English countryside, look no further than the Outdoor Recreation Center which offers wakeboarding, beach buggying and gliding. As with all Outdoor Rec activities they sell out early so make sure you don't hesitate in booking your place!

We've also got entertainment in the Galaxy Club with a free comedy evening on June 23 and the Pop Rocks concert on June 25.

Find out about all these events and more in your indispensable Get Up and Go – brought to you by 100 FSS!
