This summer’s programme of Activate events held across South Holland has been hailed as a spectacular success.

The popular events, which are run by South Holland District Council’s community development team and Lincolnshire County Council’s youth services, took place in Gedney Drove End, Donington and Sutton Bridge earlier this month.

Almost 400 people attended the events which are aimed at giving young people aged between eight and 19 the chance to try a range of activities including arts and crafts, rowing machine sessions and wall climbing.

The three events benefited from warm weather, with many participants choosing to stay for the day and enjoying all of the activities.

Coun Gary Taylor, portfolio holder for community, said: “All three events were very well attended and our community team received a lot of positive feedback from participants.

“I would like to thank everyone who took part and also the organisers from our team and the Flinders Founders group at Donington who helped to ensure the programme was such a spectacular success.

“There are numerous events being held across South Holland this summer, many of which are listed in our popular Summer Fun brochure.”

The Summer Fun brochure is available for free from South Holland District Council’s offices in Priory Road, Spalding and various libraries and sports centres across the district. The brochure can also be viewed at www.sholland.gov.uk
