It is going to be a Summer of Fun for children and young people in Swansea with hundreds of free activities catering for a huge variety of interests are taking place during the school summer holidays.

They include sports, play, community event, arts and crafts, skills such as computer coding and days the whole family can enjoy.

Dozens of community groups and organisations across Swansea successfully applied for grant funding from Swansea Council and the Welsh Government to put on activities.

The Summer of Fun programme along with information and contact details can now be found at www.swansea.gov.uk/summeroffun.

Elliott King, Swansea Council’s Cabinet member for Children’s Services, said: “I’m delighted that so many groups and organisations have been successful in securing funding so that they can stage a range of free leisure, recreational, sporting and cultural activities for children and young people aged up to 25.

“They are taking place at venues across Swansea so I’d urge families to have to see what is on offer as I’m certain there is something suitable for all.

“Since the start of the pandemic Swansea Council has been there for children and young people supporting them through the challenges of shielding, interrupted education and the loss of time out face-to-face with friends and family.

“The council is still there for them as we emerge from the pandemic and the Summer of Fun programme is a fantastic opportunity to bring great play ideas to life in ways that can help brighten up the summer for all children and young people.”
