A number of ANGUSalive Holiday Activities have received funding from Angus Council and the Scottish Government. This enables people to take part in activities for free and includes disability & inclusion, library and museum activities as well as swimming and inflatable sessions for 4 -17 year olds from 1 July – 14 August.
Councillor Lynne Devine, Angus Council’s Children and Learning Convenor and ANGUSalive board member, said: “I’m delighted Angus Council can continue our partnership with ANGUSalive to offer free swimming for all school children in Angus and support fun activities during the Summer holidays including opportunities for our children and families with Additional Support Needs.
“It’s great to see such a wide range of activities on offer funded from our Holiday Food and Fun budget and Scottish Government funding.”
Angus Libraries have also organised a number of events to celebrate Visit Scotland’s Year of Stories. All ages can join renowned wildlife author and conservationist Polly Pullar at Monikie Country Park on Tuesday 12 July. Polly will tell stories of her life working with wildlife and the animals she has rescued and hand reared. Children’s activities are also available at this session with a Picnic/ BBQ provided for all attendees.
Scotland’s Year of Stories celebrates stories inspired by, written or created in Scotland, with a month long festival of events happening in July. Everyone can experience the diversity of stories that Scotland has inspired in this calendar of events, whether through visiting locations, storytelling attractions or learning more about traditions.
Christine Sharp, ANGUSalive Adult and Community Libraries Lead said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Year of Stories with Polly Pullar in the natural surroundings of Monikie Country Park. As well as being fascinating, Polly’s stories might help to inspire others to take action on nature and conservation activities that are essential moving through the 21st century. Various other ANGUSalive summer activities feature in the Year of Stories Festival.”
Summer Holiday Activities will run from 4 July – 12 August 2022 and can be viewed at www.angusalive.scot/holiday-activities
