Summer Playschemes - it's time to book

Parents who are bracing themselves for May half-term school holidays (24 - 30 May) can find lots of affordable local activities for children and young people on the Lancaster City Council's website. And there's more planned for the Summer holidays too.

 Marsh Community Centre (MCC), in partnership with Lancaster City Council will once again be running a summer play scheme for children aged 8-11. Over the past 10 years the Council has been providing play schemes for children living in local communities and are delighted again to report that they will be offering 100 places between two venues at a very affordable price for families seeking activities for their children over the summer holidays.

Included in the price (except one final trip at the end which is normally £5!) are activities such as fun sport games, baking, arts and crafts, swimming, National Play day, trips out, theatre and much much more. It is also a fantastic opportunity for children to make new friends and learn new skills. The schemes are run by qualified CRB-checked staff with full risk assessments.

 Two schemes will be operating this year for only £2 per day:

Play-scheme ONE:
Venue: 13th Lancaster Scout Hut, Giant Axe, West Road, Lancaster, LA1 5PE.
Starts: Monday 28th July 2014
Ends: Friday 22nd August 2014.
Times: 10am – 4pm
Costs: £2 per day per child.

Play-scheme TWO
Venue: Our Ladys Catholic College, Morecambe Road, Lancaster, LA1 2RX.
Starts: Monday 28th July 2014
Ends: Friday 22nd August 2014.
Times: 10am – 4pm
Costs: £2 per day per child.

Registration is simple. Visit the MCC website on www.mcccc.org.uk and click on 'Summer Play Scheme 2014'. Read the information and, at the bottom, click for the online booking form.

All bookings are made online and the form is simple and straightforward to use. You don't need to book for the whole scheme and there are options on what days you can book for. A final cost is provided at the end. Once submitted, the family will receive an immediate automated message telling them how to pay.
