With the school holidays fast approaching, there has already been a healthy demand for many of Cotswold District Council’s ‘Summer off the Streets’ (SOTS) activities organised by World Jungle.
Both the Multi-media workshop and Survival Skills workshop are already fully booked and other activities, which must be reserved in advance, are also filling up fast.
Jane Manning of World Jungle said:
“There are still places available for the other courses which require reservations and a small fee such as Cool Cooks, Funky Fashion, Cool Drawing and Creative Felt. However, I would advise anyone interested to put their name down as soon as possible.
“Obviously, no bookings are necessary for the FREE community fun days which are taking place across the district throughout July and August. The first one is at the Abbey Grounds in Cirencester on Tuesday 29 July to tie in with ‘Love Parks’ week.”
Here are a taste of some of the activities in the programme:
Cool Cooks – 11 am to 1 pm, Monday 28 July at Dolphins Hall, Tetbury
