Children in Great Lever will be spoilt for things to do as the summer holidays stretch out in front of them.
A packed programme of activities has been organised by the council and its partners over the six weeks holiday period, ending on September 3.
Youngsters can get involved and participate in a range of activities to be delivered across four local parks and play areas in Great Lever - Sunnyside, Saint Williams Field, Bobby Heywood and Great Lever Park. Local community centres will also host some sessions.
The activities have been jointly funded by Great Lever Neighbourhood Management; Harper Green Area Forum and Great Lever Area Forum.
The programme also incorporates activities organised by the council’s Children’s Services department and partner agencies including Irwell Valley.
The programme offers football, henna workshops; play and activity sessions; children’s cookery sessions; cricket; street dance and health and beauty. It has been developed after Great Lever Neighbourhood Management carried out a variety of consultation sessions with local youngsters.
Councillor Linda Thomas, Executive Member for Corporate Resources and Health, said: “The summer holidays are always a great time for young people and these activities will help to ensure this year’s summer break is a time to remember and to be cherished for a long time to come. I am pleased we have been able to deliver these activities which, at the same time as being fun, are healthy as well.”
