More news, no ads


A series of fun activities are on offer for youngsters who receive benefits-related free school meals.

During the summer months, children and young people can enjoy a wide range of activities from Lincolnshire County Council.

This comes after the Government asked councils to provide a Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme, funded by the Department for Education.

The county council has been working with schools, sport providers, leisure centres, youth clubs, early years settings and kids’ clubs to organise holiday clubs across the county for primary and secondary-aged children. Free meals and snacks will also be on offer at the clubs.

They will offer activities such as music, cooking, trips to places of interest, arts and crafts, sports and games, drama, beatboxing, animal encounters, and kite making.

Families not eligible for a free place can pay for one at the clubs at early years’ settings - and at some of the clubs for older children too.

Coun Patricia Bradwell, executive member for children’s services, said: “The HAF programme is designed to provide eligible children with a range of engaging activities, as well as free, healthy food. In addition, being with their friends will aid their emotional wellbeing and social development.

“Hundreds of children have already taken part in our previous programmes, and the feedback from families has been fantastic. So, if your family is eligible for the programme, don’t let your child miss out.”
