Sunshine, friends and good times – that’s what is on the wish list for us this summer as dozens of activity clubs will be popping up across the borough.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich will be funding free places at holiday clubs throughout the holidays for school children who are eligible for free school meals, using a grant from the Department for Education.
There is something on offer for everyone, with everything from football camps to arts and crafts and youth clubs operating throughout July and August.
And on top of that, there will be access to free, nutritious meals all summer long – with sites offering lunches across Royal Greenwich.
Councillor Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, said: “We’ve all missed socialising so it is brilliant that we will be able to offer safe and secure schemes like these which will allow for our young people to get together again.
“Everyone wants to get back to normal, and this is a huge step towards that. We’re working hard with our partners to make sure this summer is a special one.”
Councillor Matt Morrow, cabinet member for Children and Young People, added: “I am thrilled that we have so many fantastic schemes running this summer. I hope that children enjoy themselves and make some fantastic memories with their friends.
“We know that for some families the summer holidays can be stressful, so we’re pleased to be able to ensure that our young people will have access to healthy food and active play throughout July and August. Visit our interactive map to see what’s on and make sure you sign up today!”
The Royal Greenwich Together: Holiday Food and Fun programme will support activities from 26 July – 27 August.
