Young People from across the district can enjoy sports, activities and healthy food this February half term as part of the Active Kitchen scheme.

The district council, working in partnership with YMCA Worcestershire, will be running fun activities and providing a healthy meal for anyone aged 9-16 years old in Catshill, Charford, Rubery and Sidemoor this week.

Activities will include dance, skipping, football, rugby, basketball, dodgeball, cricket and more.

All sessions will be running from 12-2pm.

The sessions provide a safe, welcoming place for local children aged 9-16 to keep active during the school holidays and avoid holiday hunger with free home-prepared meals.

Whilst anyone of eligible age is welcome to attend, the sessions aim to have a lasting impact on the lives of young people, empowering personal value and self-confidence, in areas with higher levels of deprivation.

The Active Kitchen project is currently supported by the district council’s Sports Development Team, YMCA, Newsong Community Church and the Oakland Foundation.
