With the summer break round the corner, Hounslow Council’s youth and community service has organised a packed programme of activities from sports to creative workshops for children and young people to enjoy during the long summer holidays.

This will provide a range of activities that are fun, enjoyable, inclusive and educational and will help children and young people use their time constructively.

The programme includes play schemes with the Hounslow Play team in central Hounslow – involving sports games and arts & crafts from Mondays to Fridays, plus a full summer programme for young people with special needs and their families that will host outdoor activities at Redlees Play Centre in Isleworth, TW7 6DW. The playground currently hosts an outdoor play area with swings and a trampoline, as well as a sensory garden.

Summer camps are also arranged for those aged eight-16, including a four day camp filled with fun group games, exercises, workshops and fun trips out.  These will be hosted from The Hub Youth Centre, 103 Salisbury Road, Hounslow TW4 7NW, while those who like to keep fit with sports, can go along to the multi-sports camp at the Osterley Sports Centre, Isleworth, TW7 5FF.

For children aged
four-16 in the community, there is also a summer workshop, activities include acrobatics, visual art, textiles and more.

There is also a full summer programme for children and young people with disabilities in the borough, managed by the short breaks team. 

Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services, Hounslow Council, said: “There is something for everyone from toddlers to young people, up to age 25 for those who need additional support.


“It will also be a chance for many of our young people to gain confidence socially, start a new hobby and become active members of their communities.

 

“It’s a great way to experience something new that you might not have tried before and learn new skills.

 

“Residents should also remember to visit their local leisure centres during the summer holidays, as there are always extra activities taking place at this time.”
