THE Vale of Glamorgan’s Family Information Service has launched a programme of summer activities for children to enjoy over the school holidays.

In partnership with organisations across the Vale, the service has put together a calendar of events suitable for children and young people up to the age of 25, alongside several family activities.

Libraries, Flying Start and Health Living Teams offer several free events for children and teenagers to enjoy during the holidays.

Cllr Gwyn John, Vale of Glamorgan Council member for leisure, sport, and wellbeing said: “The summer holidays can be a tough time for parents, especially during the current cost of living crisis.

“This is why it is more important than ever to provide children and young people with low-cost and free activities.

“I hope that the FIS Summer Holiday Programme will help families find fun ways to spend their summer holidays.”

Activities include free or low-cost craft and story events across all Vale libraries, as well as free football, dance, skateboarding, and paddle sport sessions throughout the Vale.

Other activities include music sessions, beach academy activities, and free play sessions across the Vale where free play equipment is provided.

The Vale Youth Service will also be running several pop-up Youth Club sessions throughout the summer for both older children and young people up to the age of 25.

The Summer 2023 Activities Programme kicks off on Saturday, July 22, and will run throughout the summer until September 3.

You can find the full programme of events on the Council’s website.
