Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

Par­ents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang look­ing to keep their chil­dren oc­cu­pied dur­ing the sum­mer hol­i­days can take ad­van­tage of nearly 80 ses­sions run by Project 31.

The group have just re­leased de­tails of their Sum­mer Fun pro­gramme for 2016.

All the ac­tiv­i­ties are free of charge and cover the whole seven-week hol­i­day pe­riod.

They in­clude a wide range of sports, arts, play, out­door learn­ing and for­est school.

Weekly themes in­clude ‘cel­e­brate sum­mer,’‘wild about wood­land’and ‘crazy car­ni­val’.

Ses­sion lo­ca­tions in­clude Over­toun and Cam­bus­lang Parks, Stonelaw and Holmhills Woods and the Spring­hall, West­burn and Whit­law­burn play parks and Burn­hill pitches.

A num­ber of part­ners will be in­volved in the pro­gramme, in­clud­ing R:evolve, Home School Part­ner­ship, Ac­tive Schools, Friends of Cam­bus­lang Park and the South La­nark­shire Coun­cil rangers.

The ses­sions are suit­able for chil­dren aged up to 12.

Project 31 man­ager, Lorna Bam­ford can’t wait to get started and is look­ing for­ward to the sum­mer ses­sion.

She said:“We’re look­ing for­ward to an­other bril­liant sum­mer of ac­tiv­ity, with ev­ery­thing from For­est School week to Toys and Tales with R:evolve, Sports Day and a party for Harry Pot­ter’s birth­day.

“The sum­mer is such a great time for chil­dren and fam­i­lies to make mem­o­ries that last a life­time and there are lots of op­por­tu­ni­ties within our hol­i­day pro­gramme to do that!

“As al­ways, our ac­tiv­i­ties are to­tally free of charge mak­ing them ac­ces­si­ble to all so we’re hop­ing to see lots of new fam­i­lies com­ing along as well as lots of our reg­u­lar Project 31 friends.”
