Easter activities laid on for Stratford youngsters eligible for free school meals

Stratford Editorial 25th Mar, 2024   0

EASTER activities for youngsters eligible for free school meals are being laid on across Stratford district.

As part of the national Holiday Activities and Food programme, several local leisure centres are hosting free activities, all accompanied by free lunches.

The participating centres include Stratford Leisure Centre, Shipston Leisure Centre, Southam Leisure Centre and The Greig Leisure Centre in Alcester – all of which are managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Stratford District Council.

Each facility is offering something different, from free swim or gym sessions to TAGactive games and swim discos. Every session will include a free nutritious and balanced lunchtime meal.

The initiative aims to ensure that children from families who are eligible for free school meals can enjoy an active and engaging Easter half term.

SDC’s neighbourhood spokesperson Coun Lorraine Grocott said: “We know that the school holidays can be pressure points for some families because of increased costs.

These holiday activity programmes are a great way for young people to try a range of fun activities in a safe environment and meet new friends.”

For all centres, advance registration is required, and places are limited.
