Help Keeping East Riding Kids Occupied in Summer Holidays


5:29pm 21st June 2013

'School's Out 2013’ will be helping parents and carers get organised and ready for the long summer break, encouraging young people to keep active during the summer holidays.

Now in its eighth year, this handy publication, produced by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, is delivered to over 26,000 homes of children aged 4 -16 years who attend schools in the East Riding.

Packed full of activities including archery, balloon modelling and den-making from the sport and play team, voluntary sports clubs and sports for disabled children and young people, it promises to be another success this year.

This year East Riding leisure centres have a huge presence throughout School’s Out, which means parents and carers will be able to find out what is going on at any East Riding leisure centre just from looking through the guide.

Posted out in the beginning of July, it gives parents and carers the opportunity to plan their children's activities ahead, and it provides lots of ideas on how to keep children busy and active during the long summer break.

Copies will also be made available at various council outlets including customer service centres, libraries, leisure centres and schools. The booklet will also be available to view on-line on the council website and FISH pages by the end of June. 

Councillor Julie Abraham, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s portfolio holder for children, young people and education, said: “With so much on offer over the summer there is no excuse for children and young people being bored. It is excellent that there are so many activities for children with disabilities and I hope that all of our young people have a great and memorable summer break.”

To find out more about activities available over the summer holidays please visit events.eastriding.gov.uk or for more information on the School’s Out guide call Keeley Chambers (01482) 931460.
