Flintshire’s summer play schemes are gearing up for another summer of fun.
The schemes, which have been in existence since 1996, will be delivered by the Council’s Play Development Team in partnership with local town and community councils, Urdd Gobaith Cymru and Welsh Government.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Youth, Councillor Ian Roberts, said:“In Flintshire, we are very proud of our summer 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.“
In 2018, 3,901 children attended the play schemes which take took place throughout the County, proving them to be yet another huge success.”
In all, this summer, there will be 56 site locations, either morning or afternoon, across the County delivered for 3, 4, 5 or 6 weeks of the summer holidays. This equates to 1,100 play sessions or 2,200 hours of play.
The sessions are for children aged between 5 and 12 years and up to 15 years for children with disabilities.
Younger children are welcome to attend with a parent, grandparent or carer.
