Hello everyone. Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16.

Of course, the day doesn’t have to cost a lot for Black Country families – simple gestures like a handmade card or breakfast in bed are thoughtful and lovely gifts to show dad you appreciate him.

Another inexpensive and thoughtful idea is handmade 'vouchers' to use in future with things such as “a lie in”, “breakfast in bed” or “watching the football in peace” – these are a great gift that the kids can get involved in making.

And there are plenty of ways to enjoy a free day out, especially with the huge amount of parks and countryside walks that are in our region. One popular destination if you have the means of getting there is the Wrekin, just of the M54. It is a bit of a climb but in fine weather the views at the top make it worth stopping off for a picnic.

If you are willing to pay for a treat on Father’s Day, then here’s a round up of the deals you could utilise.

The day can be a great excuse to get out there and enjoy some quality time as a family and there are many other deals out there. Get searching online and see what you can find.
