A WELSH Government-funded series of activities in the Vale of Glamorgan will begin on Friday.

Called the Summer of Fun, the Vale of Glamorgan Council has partnered with several community organisations to put on more than 100 free activites for young people.

Intended for people aged up to 25 years, the scheme aims to support the wellbeing of children and young people to continue their recovery from the Covid restrictions.

The scheme is also intended to ease the financial burden on families this summer by providing free entertainment.

It will begin on Friday, July 1 and will end on Friday, September 30.

The activities include, fossil hunting, archery, dance classes and radio workshops.

There are also activities tailored to be inclusive for those with additional needs.


There will be a family day at Romilly Park to celebrate National Play Day on August 3 which will highlight the importance of play for children’s physical and mental health and relationships.

Activities will be added to the list in the coming months, but the full programme as it stands can be viewed here.

Cllr Gwyn John, cabinet member for leisure, sport and well-being, said: "I am delighted to see that so many local organisations are providing free activities for young people of all ages to enjoy in the Vale.

"I hope that the Summer Of Fun programme will help families in the Vale to find fun ways to spend the summer holidays."
