Free egg-citing activities for children over the Easter Holidays

The Westmorland and Furness Holiday Activities and Food programme is now open for booking and gives eligible children a wide range of free activities to choose over the Easter holidays.

The holiday activities and food programme (HAF) provides eligible children and young people the opportunity to take part in activities with a healthy and nutritious meal included. The programme incorporates sporting activities, crafts, egg hunts and much more, to support children and young people to try new things, have fun and improve their wellbeing.

HAF is funded by the Department of Education and administered locally by Westmorland and Furness Council, and is available for children of families supported by benefits-related free school meals and other children in particular circumstances. Most activities will also have paid for places for other children to enjoy.

Councillor Sue Sanderson, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services said:

“With the rising costs of living, it is really important that children and young people are given opportunities to improve their well-being and confidence. I’m really pleased that we’re able to offer a wide range of activities over the Easter holidays again which will support them to do that.

“HAF has been very popular in the past, so we urge those who are eligible to book places as soon as possible.”
