South Holland free family fun days will Activate your summer
South Holland District Council is running a series of free family fun days this summer through their ‘Activate!’ programme, a series of activity days for children and young people in July and August. These will take place during the week and move around a variety of towns and villages within the district.
‘Activate!’ days are designed to give children, young people and their families a free opportunity to try new sports and arts activities within their local community, making sure they make the most of the sun during the summer holidays and introducing them to opportunities in their local area.
Over a thousand people took part in the days in 2018, with activities on offer this year including a climbing wall, rowing machines, arts and crafts activities, a mobile skate park and sports activities. The full family is encouraged to come along with a picnic and stay for the day.
This summer ‘Activate!’ events will be held from 11am - 3pm at the following locations:
• Wednesday, July 31, Glen Park, Surfleet;
• Wednesday, August 7, Elizabethan Centre, Whaplode Drove;
• Wednesday, August 14, Donington Community Centre, Donington;
• Wednesday, August 21, Haywain Drive, Deeping St Nicholas;
• Wednesday, August 28, Cinder Ash Park, Long Sutton.
Coun Gary Taylor, portfolio holder for communities and facilities, said: "After so many people came along last summer, it is great to see another packed series of great and free events for people of all ages across South Holland this summer.”
“The Activate days encourage families to make the most of the summer holidays and hopefully discover a passion for a new sport or activity that will last much longer than six weeks. It’s fantastic that this opportunity is being spread out across the district and I would urge anyone interested to go along and try something new.”
