Things are a lot more organised these days, with the local unitary authority providing things for kids to do during their long summer break.
The council is now consulting parents to find out what they think of this provision. And you can have a say.
FROM KIRSTY WESTFIELD, NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
North Lincolnshire Council would like to find out what parents and carers think about the leisure and sports provision offered in school holidays at its facilities.
Share your views on the leisure and sports provision, specifically for eight to 12 year-olds, offered throughout North Lincolnshire at council leisure centres and the Energise programme which includes opportunities for arts and culture.
Whether you think changes need to be made to the current services or if you are happy with what is on offer, we want to hear your views.
We would like to find out how easy the services are to access, which sites you use, what activities your children take part in and if you would make any changes to the services offered.
You can have your say online by completing the survey at www.northlincs.gov.uk/current-consultations
The consultation is taking place from 1 August to 6 September 2017.
Don’t miss the chance to have your say.
Coun Carl Sherwood, from Brigg, Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing, said: “We are committed to providing the best services for people in North Lincolnshire and ensuring they meet the needs of individuals.
“Throughout the school holidays our venues offer a range of activities for children and young people, however we want to make sure they are meeting parents’ and carers’ expectations.
“This survey will help us identify if any developments need to be made to services in 2018.
“We would appreciate if you could take the time to complete the questionnaire to ensure your needs are being met. Any comments will be taken on board and will help with any future decision-making on childcare provision at our leisure and cultural venues.”
