Duration: 12 – 16 February 2024.
The February “Eat to Meet 2” Half Term programme starts soon and there are lots of great activities happening over the school holidays! Children and young people, from reception to age 16, who are eligible for benefits related free school meals, will be able to access hundreds of activities throughout including specific provision available for children with SEND or additional needs, at no cost.
There’s a great range of activities across the city including activities linked to Chinese New Year, Shrove Tuesday, and Valentine’s Day as well as boxfit, football, music, dance, cycling, gymnastics, smoothie making bike, cooking, discos, archery, arts and crafts, drama, tri-golf, trips out and zorbing! Every day there will be a range of fabulous meals available with many schemes holding family events as well.
When a parent/guardian/carer has chosen the activity/scheme they will need to contact that organisation to book a place. Each organisation will have either a telephone number, email address or online booking system. If their child has any additional needs or dietary requirements then they will need to discuss this with the organisation when they book. There is no central booking system so they will need to read the details of the programmes on the website and contact the providers directly.
