Parents and carers can now book activity clubs for their children over the forthcoming half-term holidays. More than 25,000 places were provided for pupils who receive free school meals (FSM) over the summer holiday in Nottingham this year. A total of 59 community groups put on activities at 79 different venues. The clubs will run again both weeks of the October half-term (w/c 17 and 24) as part of a continued link-up between the Council and Nottingham Forest Community Trust as its lead project partner this year. More activities will also take place at Christmas. Children all receive a free lunch, alongside a programme of activities focused on healthy eating, fitness and mental health. There are also a limited number of places available for children who aren’t eligible for FSM and these will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The list of clubs, and the parts of the city they serve, are now available to view and book online through the Ask Lion website.
