Holiday Activities & Food (HAF)
The County Council ran a successful Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) over the summer, providing many local children and young people with enriching activities, free healthy meals and lots of fun.
Clubs were held at schools, nurseries and kids clubs, leisure centres and sports grounds for all ages with the opportunity to participate in games, swimming, dance, music, arts and crafts, visits and much more.
Bookings Open for Christmas Holidays
The Christmas holiday programme is now open for bookings – please do spread the good news of how the clubs can help children and young people make new friends, socialise and have fun during the holidays.
Nourishing food is provided, and sporty, healthy food activities vary from one club to another, depending on location and provision available.
There are clubs across the whole of the county. You can find further details on the county council website.
Host a HAF
If your organisation or business would like to support future holidays programmes by providing activities, food or equipment, or if you would like to just find out more you can email: email@example.com
