Fun activities and healthy food for children and young people over the school holidays
Cheshire West and Chester Council is working with local partners to ensure that children and young people in the borough have access to healthy food and fun activities over the summer holidays. The Government’s Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF), which is backed by the Child Food Poverty Taskforce and supported by footballer Marcus Rashford MBE, has provided funding for provision across the borough to cover the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays in 2021.
The holiday programme is targeted to support children and young people who have been most affected by the pandemic, offering a safe and supportive environment where they can learn, be active and eat well, as well as make new friends locally.
The Council is working with a range of partners, including Brio Leisure, Edsential and their own Youth Service to provide the provision locally to ensure there is a wide range of activities available for all ages and abilities.
The holiday activity clubs will provide healthy meals and snacks and a range of fun activities, such as yoga, skateboarding, swimming courses, forest schools, hair dressing and arts and crafts for youngsters to try out.
