Summer holiday activity places are still available to Oxfordshire children
Places are still available for children and young people on the holiday activities and food programme across Oxfordshire this summer. That is the message to parents from Oxfordshire County Council, thanks to its £400,000 investment in the scheme.
Activities include life skills and health care initiatives for children aged 5 to 16 years, such as swimming lessons, bike riding, creative arts and education around nutrition and cookery.
Organisations supporting the holiday activities programme include:
- Oxford Hub – Blackbird Leys
- Wilderness Pioneers – Oxford
- Ignite Sport – Oxford, Faringdon, and Witney
- Elite Sport – Didcot
- Active Leaders – Sonning Common
- Chinnor Rugby FC
- Leys CDI - Oxford
- GLL Leisure Centres
Thirty thousand planned places were made available over the summer period for children aged 5-16 years eligible for free school meals. Although some of the activities have now finished, there are still places available from a range of providers.
Further information is available from the OXME website.
Parents and families can find out if they are eligible for free places by calling 01865 328460 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
