ACTIVITY sessions for children just over the border in Powys will be held during the summer holidays, the county council has said.

Powys County Council has arranged its Children’s Summer Sessions, which will be held every weekday afternoon from July 27 to August 26.

The sessions will take place at Knighton Primary School, Freedom Leisure Centres in Brecon, Newtown, Rhayader, Welshpool and Ystradgynlais, Ysgol Bro Hyddgen (secondary campus), and Llandrindod Wells Youth Centre, and are aged for children aged five to 16.

The council is reminding parents who are key workers that the emergency childcare provision currently provided by schools and five leisure centres across the county will end of July 24.

The sessions, which will run in line with Welsh Government Covid-19 guidance, will be held Monday to Friday from 1.30 to 4.30pm. Places will be limited so parents must book their child’s place online.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Children's Services, said: “Thanks to our partnerships with Freedom Leisure, Activ8Kids and the Urdd, we are able to provide summer holiday activities for children in venues across the county.

“For your child to attend, you must book a place online by Thursday for the following weeks sessions.

“We hope the children will enjoy the creative, fun and outdoor activities, make new friends and have a great time!”

Places are limited and will be allocated within Welsh Government guidance.
