The County summer play scheme programme 2021 promises to be a fantastic opportunity for children across the County. It will be delivered in partnership with local town and community councils, Welsh Government and Urdd Gobaith Cymru. We are recruiting to our community teams or to work as a Buddy for the P.A.L.S. inclusive play project. (Play and Leisure Support)

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Youth, Councillor Ian Roberts, said:

“In Flintshire, we are very proud of our play schemes which provide children with the opportunity – the time, space and permission - to play out locally, meeting up with old friends and making new ones.  Our fantastic Play Development team has been given the OK from Welsh Government to deliver the play provision within Covid regulations.  They are experienced in managing it safely and, most importantly, it supports vulnerable children.”
