Summer off the Streets is almost here! This means that an impressive number of fantastic fun-filled workshops for children, young people and families will be taking place in Cam & Dursley and across the Cotswolds during the school summer holidays. Activities will include: samba drumming; circus skills; music technology; bushcraft and cookery skills and more. Many workshops will be free but those which carry a charge will only cost £5 per person. In most cases, advance booking will be essential. Full details of the workshop programme and how to book, can be found on the Summer off the Streets website(opens in a new window). In addition to the workshops, there will also be a Summer Skate Park Event at the Jubiliee Field and Skate Park in Cam taking place on the 6th August from 1pm-4pm which will be free for everyone and include DJs, competitions, youth activities and prizes. This will also mark the opening of the new pavilion. Local community and arts organisation World Jungle is organising the programme with support from Gloucestershire County Council. Ben Ward from World Jungle says: “The 2017 ‘Summer off the Streets’ programme provides activities for children of all abilities to have fun, learn some skills and make new friends – there really is something for everyone! We hope that this programme will give young people and families access to some really great events to enjoy over the summer holidays. Cllr Loraine Patrick, Gloucestershire County Councilor for Dursley , is impressed by the range of activities on offer: “It’s good to see so many activities to choose from, and I am sure that children across the area will enjoy them immensely. It is important to give children and young people the opportunity to try something new and to keep active during the holidays.” For more information, please contact Ben Ward from World Jungle on 07889 512644, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.worldjungle.org.uk(opens in a new window).
