Youngsters will have a ball at Wrap, Run & Fun
Posted on 25 Jun 2019
Youngsters can catch up with their friends, enjoy a nutritious lunch and take part in some fantastic, free activities as Wrap, Run & Fun sessions are launched at a number of schools and community venues this summer.
North Ayrshire Council’s new and improved holiday school meals and activities programme - recently named ‘Wrap, Run & Fun’ in a vote by local school children - will run at Dalry, Dreghorn, Elderbank, Hayocks, Mayfield and St Bridget’s primary schools on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from Monday, July 1 to Friday, August 9.
Sessions are completely free of charge to all North Ayrshire primary school children.
Youngsters will be served up a healthy Gold Standard 'Food for Life' lunch and can take part in a range of activities, from arts and drama to active fun with KA Leisure. There’s no need to register - kids can simply turn up on the day at any of the participating schools.
Councillor Jim Montgomerie, Cabinet Member for Place, said: “We are thrilled to introduce our new school holiday meals sessions for this summer break.
“This is the first time we have worked with KA Leisure to provide the activities, and there are lots of fun sessions in store for kids throughout the holidays.
“Wrap, Run & Fun is a fantastic way for children to meet with up their friends in a safe and supervised environment, burn off some energy and enjoy a free, tasty lunch into the bargain.”
A number of community centres will also be holding Wrap, Run & Fun sessions, where a small charge may apply and registration may be required in advance.
Participating centres are as follows: Fullarton Community Hub, Redburn Community Centre and Vineburgh Community Centre, all in Irvine; The PLAYZ and Woodwynd Community Centre in Kilwinning; and Whitlees Community Centre in Ardrossan.
