FREE Easter activities are still available for children across Cheshire East.

Sports, arts and crafts, baking, games and trips out are being offered to parents and carers of children eligible for free school meals.

Cheshire East Council has worked together with local schools, childcare providers and community and voluntary organisations to offer thousands of free activities over the Easter school holidays.

Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities can also take part in a variety of sessions and will be given a nutritious meal each day.

The free places are funded by the Department for Education, as part of the government’s Holiday Activity and Food Fund programme, which has been run successfully across Cheshire East since 2020.

Families who are being supported by the council’s early help or social care teams are asked to contact their lead worker, who can help with access to the free places.

Parents and carers not eligible for the free places, are asked to contact the activity organisers directly, as some do offer fee-paying sessions.

The programme sits alongside the government’s household support fund, which aims to help families across England with the cost of food, energy, water bills and other essentials.
