Schools and organisations across Salford have come together to offer an action-packed range of fun activities, and food, for four to 16-year-olds this summer.
The activities, which range from baking and cookery to arts, crafts, sports and music will run across Salford from Monday 26 July to Thursday 19 August.
The initiative is aimed to help keep young people in safe, fun and interactive environments during the long summer holidays.
Councillor Sharmina August, Lead Member for Inclusive Economy, Anti-Poverty and Equalities at Salford City Council said:
“The summer holidays are a very exciting time for young people and we want them to have a great time and be safe.
“Many families do not have access to lots of spare money and it can be very expensive to occupy youngsters during the weeks they are off school. So we have made it that most of the activities in this initiative are be absolutely free. I’d like to thanks all partners for making this possible and coming together to put on this fantastic list of activities.
“Our young people can look forward to time off school knowing they can have some fun days out, take part in new experiences and make new friends.”
Many activities will be free but, if there is a small charge, the money will be used to help less fortunate Salford children and young people.
