Cllr David Rose, Cabinet Member for Children, Families and Learning, said: “We like to make sure there are plenty of things to do during school holidays and I am sure the activity programme will prove very popular. For those who prefer more relaxed pastimes, our libraries offer a range of free and cheap activities throughout the school holidays, including the always popular Summer Reading Challenge.”
