Wakefield Council are working with over thirty voluntary and community organisations, local schools and childcare providers as part of a locally branded WF Happy Healthy Holidays programme to provide a summer of free activities and food for children (aged 5-16) eligible for income – related free school meals throughout the district. The programme aims to reduce inactivity and isolation experienced by many children across the Wakefield district during the school holidays, as well as providing children with healthy meals and nutritional education. This opportunity is provided as part of the government’s expanded Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme.
What Activities are Available? There are lots of activities on offer including dance, pottery, climbing wall, forest Schools, fire fighter courses, football, rugby, family picnic days, cricket, archery, arts and crafts, cooking and baking, and much more!
