Holiday Activity & Food Project (HAF)
Applebees Fitness, COACH, Channel Adventure and The Weir Cafe are delighted to have received government funding to deliver a holiday activity programme during the Easter Holidays. Taking place in and around French Weir Park, this will combine exciting outdoor activities with learning about food nutrition and preparation.
Each programme is either 4 consecutive mornings or afternoons, in which children will take part in a variety of activities as well as enjoy a nutritious and delicious hot meal each day.
Programmes you can book your child onto are:
5th April – 8th April: Mornings (8.30 – 12.30)
5th April – 8th April: Afternoons (13.00 – 17.00)
12th April – 15th April: Mornings (8.30 – 12.30)
12th April – 15th April: Afternoons (13.00 – 17.00)
Please note: the programme is run over 4 days, it is not possible to book for individual days.
Outdoor Education is a great medium to not only support children’s physical and mental health but also to develop their personal and social skills, developing their self esteem and self worth. The timetable below gives an idea of some of the activities on offer, these will vary depending on age of participants, numbers, weather conditions and river levels but planned activities include Icebreakers / challenges, Wide games/ frisbee, land based Outdoor Activities, fitness sessions, water based outdoor activities, rowing fitness, food nutrition, team challenges to include food preparation.
The course is suitable for those aged 8-16yrs. We will aim to group ages appropriately but this will depend on the ages of those who book.
Dates & Times
Courses will take place during the weeks of 5th April and 12th April. We are running two sessions per day from Monday-Thursday. These are 8:30am-12:30pm and 1pm-5pm.
This funding has been made available by the Department for Education (DFE) to enable local groups to provide holiday activities including food to children eligible for free school meals in Somerset. This is part of the Government programme which has provided healthy food and enriching activities to disadvantaged children since 2018 and is now being expanded across the whole of England. School holidays can be pressure points for some families because of increased costs (such as food and childcare) and reduced incomes.
If your child is in receipt of free school meals they can access these activities free of charge. If your child is not eligible you are still very welcome to book them on to the programme, at a cost of £99 for a block of 4 sessions (either morning or afternoon on either week). Funding is provided for one week of morning or afternoon sessions. If you wish to do more this is absolutely possible but would be charged at £99.
