Mum's praise for summer activity programme

Redditch Editorial 14th Aug, 2021   0

A SUMMER activity programme which provides water safety classes and free lunches for children, at Abbey Stadium, has been deemed ‘absolutely fantastic’ by a Redditch mum.

The Holiday Activity Food Worcestershire programme sees local youngsters who would, in term time, receive free school meals, invited to attend an active two-week programme which includes a freshly prepared lunch.

The programme, which began August 2 and runs until August 13 includes an hour class of ‘Confidence to Swim’ and also ‘Born to Move’ which is on dry land.

Marie King, whose two children Ethan and Kayla have taken part in the programme, has watched their confidence grow.

“My daughter who has never been in a pool before has grown in confidence and is absolutely blooming.

“My son no longer wears goggles in the pool and is confident splashing around.”

Through funding from HAF the children receive a free healthy lunch and drink.

Council Leader Matt Dormer said: “It is important we that unlock leisure opportunities for all of our residents to enjoy and through this project we are able to do just that.”
