Summer activities for children and young people

One of the issues highlighted with us by residents in our Big Survey last year was a desire to see more activities to keep children and young people occupied in a safe environment. We know that over the summer many families will be looking for affordable activities locally.

That’s why we are using our delegated ward budget alongside the council’s Early Help service this year to support free local activities, open to all:

  • This Wednesday, 25th July, there will be parachute games, ball games and more for younger Outdoor Active Kids on Flanderwell Park (behind the Brush and Easel pub) between 1pm and 3pm. There’s no need to book a place, but children must be supervised by an adult.
  • Then from Wednesday 1st August and every Wednesday through the school holidays, there will be activities and sports for  children aged between 10 and 17 years of age, from 6.30pm to 9pm, also on Flanderwell Park. For further information contact Shaz on 07969977294.
  • And on Wednesday 15th August, again for younger children on Flanderwell Park, there will be a Teddy Bears’ Picnic between 1pm and 3pm. Bring along a picnic, blanket and Teddy. Come and join in some fun & games!

On Friday nights through the summer there will also be mobile youth workers in our area to support and engage our young people.
