Information for families

Join in the fun at our Christmas 4 x 4!

The Department for Education (DfE) is providing funding to local authorities to coordinate a programme that provides healthy food and enriching activities to school aged children, who are eligible for free school meals, during the 2021 Christmas holidays. The sessions include a healthy meal, advice to families on how to source, prepare and cook nutritious food and a variety of exciting activities and sports.

It will be optional for eligible children to attend this provision. If not eligible, children can pay to attend and join in the fun.
