Free activities for children and young people this half term

by Jonathan Kearney

Children and young people can access FREE activities across Knowsley during the forthcoming half term.

The Knowsley SNAP programme will provide 4,800 free activity places throughout the borough.

Funded by the Knowsley Council Hardship Fund, a diverse range of sessions will be delivered by a variety of providers throughout Knowsley.

Administered by One Knowsley in partnership with Knowsley Council, the free activity sessions will also include a healthy meal for participants.

No vouchers will be required to book an activity session, with the programme available to all children and young people in Knowsley.

To find out more about the activities available and how to book, visit the One Knowsley website.

Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “It can be challenging to occupy children during the half term so I’d urge people to take advantage of the variety of activities on offer and book a session. With so much going on there’s bound to be an activity to suit everyone and I’m sure the children and young people taking part will really benefit.”

Cllr Shelley Powell, Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods, said: “There is going to be plenty of free activity sessions for children and young people to engage in during this period, which will be a boost for families and the children and young people taking part during the school break. Many of the activities will expose people to completely new experiences and I know from visiting many of the sessions previously they’ll have plenty of fun taking part.”
