Most people are looking forward to taking a break and resting throughout the festive season, indulging in seasonal food and drink and generally being merry and bright. While it’s important to relax your family’s mind from work and school, keeping your body physically active has multiple benefits for our health and fitness. And keeping kids active at Christmas time is particularly important.
Lincolnshire County Council is working with schools, sports providers, leisure centres and early years and kids’ clubs to provide fun and exciting holiday clubs for children and young people eligible for benefits-related school meals, during the Christmas holidays.
With over 70 dates of fun and active activities across Lincolnshire, you’ll be sure to find something for your children during the school holidays.
