Summer Activities Programme 2010

Issued: 15 Jun 2010

Help is at hand for parents and families staying at home this summer in a wide range of events available through The Highland Council's Summer Activities Programme.

Running throughout July and August the programme is organised by the Council's Education, Culture and Sport Service and offers a diverse range of summer holiday leisure opportunities across the Highlands.

From Farr to Kingussie and Portree to Nairn there is something for everyone, from leisure or art to sports on the playing field or in the great outdoors there is an activity to suit every interest. Pupils attending Gaelic medium education can also attend events that will be delivered by Gaelic-speaking group leaders.

Councillor Bill Fernie, Chairman of The Highland Council's Education, Culture and Sport Service said: "Holidays should be full of fun, enjoyment and relaxation, not just for children but for parents too. Our summer activities programme is a great way to get the kids active and away from the telly and the range of options also give parents a chance to have some free time as well while their children attend activities."

To get an information pack and book places on a summer activity customers can visit their local leisure facility or visit www.highlandactivities.org.uk/ and complete the Activity Booking Form.

Information is also going out through Highland schools. Once a choice has been made the booking forms can be returned by hand or by post to one of the booking venues, these are detailed in the handouts and on the website.

Advance bookings are recommended as some activities are expected to fill up fast.
