More free summer holiday activities for every child in Stroud district

Published: Tuesday, 27 July, 2021

Extra summer holiday activities for every child in the district are being laid on by Stroud District Council.

Swimming, gym sessions, fitness classes, DJ sessions, Forest Green Rovers tickets, and visits to Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Berkeley Castle are all being offered free-of-charge.

Additional funding has been made available so that more children and families will have the opportunity to take part in fun, engaging activities this summer.

Please note that due to high demand, the scheme is limited to one activity event per family.

The activities are being funded by the Community Outbreak Management Fund, as a direct response to the difficulties many families face during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The council’s Holiday Activity Fund for children who are eligible for free school meals has proved very popular, so this second set of free activities has been arranged by the council and partners for all children in the district.

“We understand and know all too well that the last 18 months have been hard for so many families in the county,” said Councillor Chris Brine, Chair of Stroud District Council Community Services and Licensing Committee.

“I am pleased that we are able to offer more children more free activities during the summer holiday.”
