Easter Holiday – Fit, Fed and Read Projects

Fit and Fed Flyer – Welwyn GCFit and Fed Flyer – Hatfield

Free activity programme running in the Easter holidays targeting local young people from families that can struggle as a result of the holidays.  The programmes have been developed as part of a StreetGames UK initiative to support young people at risk of the tripling inequalities of holiday hunger, isolation and inactivity.

This Easter the programme will be based in Welwyn Garden City Fire Station and Hatfield Fire Station. Young people from Welwyn and Hatfield who are entitled to free school meals and are in school years 3-6 can access organised sport/ physical activity, enjoy a nutritious cooked meal and receive support for their literacy skills, all free of charge.

Having said this at the moment we are struggling for numbers a little so we can be a little flexible with ages and free school meal entitlements but would still like to focus the project at those that are likely to get the greatest benefit from it.

The dates are:
Welwyn Garden City – 3-6 April
Hatfield 9-13th April

Whilst we are recruiting for both, at the moment our focus is trying to get places on the first project (Welwyn Garden City) as its due to start next Tuesday and we currently have no places taken (although we have some other organisations working on it too).

Do you know any young people that would be suitable and interested in taking part then please do let me know.

We truly believe that this has potential to be a fantastic project and make a big difference, we just want to make sure that there are people there and that we are reaching out to the people that really need it.
