Families in Angus are set for a fun packed summer as Angus Council with over 36 local organisations and partnerships working together to offer opportunities and targeted support to children and young people during the summer holidays.
The Summer Offer for Children and Young People funding from Scottish Government is for local authorities to build on their regular summer programmes offering activities to support children and young people and encourage them to socialise, play and reconnect with their communities.
The activities on offer include free access to Murton Farm, footgolf sessions, free bikes through Angus Cycle Hub, events run by Voluntary Action Angus and DD8 Music and Arts, football, rugby, boxing and community sessions organised by Active Schools Angus and ANGUSalive, plus many more running across Angus venues from Monday 28 June to Friday 6 August 2021.
Angus Council’s Children and Learning Convener, Cllr Derek Wann said: “The summer holidays are a very exciting time for young people, and we want them to have an opportunity to explore activities through Angus. It can be very expensive to keep children and young people entertained during the school holidays, so I’m delighted we’ve been able to get so many experiences organised to help children and parents/carers have fun.
“Getting this number of partners on board is a real achievement – an amazing example of what is possible in the challenging circumstances. I’d like to thank all the partners both internally, third sector organisations as well as local organisations and transport providers for coming together and making this possible.”
