First Week of the School Holiday Programme

Bill and our team of volunteers have be working really hard to ensure that there is a good programme of events for the young people of Coopers Edge over the holidays. We know the lack of facilities is frustrating and so we are doing everything we can to make sure there are fun things to do. And the activities kicked off this week with a treasure hunt on Thursday which Howard very kindly organised and planned.

Good fun was had by all as you can see from the picture below and the event was so popular other that a couple more events will be added to the programme – check earlier posts for the full timetable!

Remember the Play rangers are coming to Coopers Edge on Tuesday (2nd) between 10 and 4 and every Tuesday for the next 4 weeks. Den making, Sports, Art & Crafts & much more. A treat for all young people & don’t miss out. Over 7’s sign in & come & go as you please – under 7’s need to be accompanied. And best of all its FREE!

We know from talking to parents with younger children that they get a bit frustrated that all activities for pre-schoolers seem to stop in the summer holidays, so our Stay and Play will continue to run through the holidays – A massive thanks to Gill, Laura and Laura and all our other volunteers that help to run this event. There is a very small charge (£1 and 50p for each additional child) to cover tea, coffee and snacks – if you have an problem paying with this please speak to Bill in confidence.

In addition to this session Brockworth Children’s Centre will be running family time on Tuesdays between 1 and 3 – again this activity is suitable for Children from 0-5.

Plus we have our first trip on Friday – Free return coach for residents & reduced entrance at £9.50 adult, £6.50 for 3 to 16 year olds – Under 3’s are free. To book call me on 07923599526 – it’s almost full but due to a cancellation there maybe a couple of spaces left so be quick!

Hopefully the weather will stay nice, and if it does please remember to bring sun cream for the Play Rangers and the trip to the wildlife park.

Our succesful team of treasure hunters!
