Holiday fun and food at Vibrant Communities summer activities

The summer holidays are almost here and Vibrant Communities are ready to entertain East Ayrshire’s children and young people with a full programme of free activities.

With bubble football, outdoor play and games, trips out, sports workshops and arts and crafts on offer; there is something for all ages and abilities.

All activities are free, you just need to book a place or call 01563 578124.

Every child who attends will receive a free healthy packed lunch provided by the Council’s Catering Services team.

Councillor Elena Whitham, Depute Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities said: “The Vibrant Communities summer holiday programme is full to bursting with fun activities for young people of all ages. The activities are free and our Catering Services team will be working flat out preparing over 500 packed lunches a day for all the participants.

“We are also working closely with Centrestage who are running a holiday hunger programme from Monday 1 July until Friday 9 August. Centrestage On The Road will be providing food on a ‘take what you need pay what you can basis’.

“The school holidays can be a difficult time for parents and we are working with partners to ensure that no child in East Ayrshire goes to bed hungry. An interactive food provision map is available that will help individuals and families eat well during difficult times.”
