If you are a parent or carer of a school aged child 4 to 16 years old (reception to year 11) who is eligible for benefits-related free school meals, you can now book up to 16 hours of free activities throughout the Easter holidays. The sessions offer a wide range of exciting indoor and outdoor activities, and include den-building, paddle boarding, circus skills, boxing, arts & crafts, rugby, football, cooking and dance. Your child will also receive a free nutritious meal during each session. Some of these are able to offer provision for children with SEND or additional needs. Book now by visiting the Talk Community holiday activities webpage: www.talkcommunity.org/ holidayactivities. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis (initially a provisional booking, confirmation to follow). The activities are only available to children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals and checks will be made to ensure that children meet this criteria.

HAF understand children aren’t always able to attend booked activities, however, they would kindly request that children are cancelled off the session via the booking system to enable others to attend.
