New summer holiday clubs for young people in Wyre
Wyre Council is launching a programme of free activities this summer for children on benefits-related free school meals.
The local summer holiday clubs are part of the Government’s Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF). Backed by a nationwide investment of up to £220 million, the programme will enable children and young people to enjoy fun activities with friends and learn and develop new skills.
A range of clubs across Wyre will run from Monday 26 July until Friday 20 August and will be free for primary and secondary aged school children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
The sessions include a variety of fun activities alongside a nutritious meal each day. They are a great opportunity for young people to get out and about, get active and meet new friends. There’s plenty to enjoy including arts and crafts, cooking, bowling, kayaking, football and much more, as well as activities for children with special educational needs or disabilities.
Details of all the sessions can be found at www.wyre.gov.uk/holidayclub. Places need to be reserved and full details of how to book are also on the website.
Paid for places are available for children who are not eligible for benefits-related free school meals, please contact the activity providers directly for more information.
