FREE summer schemes keep kids entertained
DO you run out of ideas to entertain the kids as the summer holidays roll on?
South Ribble Borough Council is here to help with a wide range of FREE summer activities for children that started this week and run through until the end of August.
Following the huge success of last year's sessions the scheme has again expanded this year to provide more activities in more locations.
For children to take part, parents just need to complete a simple registration form available from the Civic Centre on West Paddock, Worden Arts Centre on Worden Park or by calling 01772 421109 and requesting a copy.
Once children have registered they can attend as many summer activity fun days as they wish for FREE.
The scheme has been made possible thanks to funding from South Ribble Area Committees, the South Ribble Community Safety Partnership and help from a variety of local organisations, agencies and community groups.
It's hoped that as well as keeping young people safe and out of trouble, the sessions will encourage youngsters to become more interested and actively involved in sports and arts activities.
Councillor David Suthers, cabinet member with responsibility for leisure and cultural services, said:
"The summer holidays can be hard work for parents, trying to keep children entertained. These free, supervised summer schemes are a great way to let children enjoy themselves in a safe environment. The schemes have gone from strength to strength in recent years and this year we have more venues and activities than ever before."
He added: "I would encourage all parents and children to go along to a local summer scheme to see for themselves the fun activities we have on offer."For more information on the time table of summer schemes or to download a registration form, click here.
