Gedling Borough Council’s summer holiday programme has been published, featuring lots of free and affordable activities, with something to suit children of all ages and abilities.

The fun activities on offer include roller discos, snorkelling, arts and crafts, a picnic in the park event, and some special movie-related events.

Events take place at venues across the borough, including at Arnold, Calverton, Redhill, and Carlton Forum Leisure Centres, The Bonington Cinema, Gedling Country Park and Arnot Hill Park.

Some activities need to be booked in advance as spaces are limited.

Councillor Viv McCrossen, Portfolio Holder for Young People and Equalities said;

“I’m so pleased that we’ve been able to put together this great range of activities for children of all ages across the borough. A priority for the council is to deliver a programme of community events and youth activities and what better time is there than over the summer holidays?

Young people across the borough have missed out on so much since the start of the pandemic, so we wanted to make sure that we could offer these fantastic activities to help entertain them over the summer whilst promoting the importance of physical activity and health and wellbeing.”
