This summer, for the first time, a wide range of free summer holiday activities is being provided across the borough of Bury – including Bury, Prestwich, Radcliffe,
Ramsbottom, Tottington and Whitefield.
The activities are all designed to be fun, to help children grow in self-confidence, to learn something new and to include a healthy meal. Taking part is free for children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
The activities are brought to you by Bury Council; Bury Voluntary, Community and Faith Alliance; Bury’s schools and the activity providers listed in this booklet.
Bury Holiday Booklet
A huge well done to Sophie, Jack and Ellison who graduated today from Bury’s Barclays Lifeskills Mentoring Programme today. The programme has helped them develop the skills they need to take their next step, whether that’s going to sixth form, college, university or straight to work. They have been involved in a variety of activities working with external facilitators, employers, students from other schools and The Talent Foundry. They were amazing!
