Out and about


The Out and About scheme is back again this summer thanks to the support of several local parish councils.  Out and About increases opportunities for local children to get involved in sports and dance sessions during the summer holiday, with the council’s providing the activities within their parish which children can get to easily.  Some activities are free, others are a nominal fee.  Your child must live within the parish to be eligible to take part.


Other parish council’s provide funding to subsidise the leisure centres school holiday Active Camps, offering children within their parish discounts off the summer camps.  To find out if your parish council is providing any leisure centre subsidies or activities within your parish visit
