This is the first of 3 special editions to promote upcoming summer activities for children and young people in the Southern Area. You will see a call for submissions on Page 4 on what to submit and we are very keen to also take ides for no / very low cost activities that families can do over the summer months with their children.

We have also included our School Uniform Toolkit on Page 3: A free practical resource for use by any group who want to set up and run a recycling scheme in their area. For anyone wishing to find out more about this and learn how we can help support you, please contact us at the usual address.

On Page 3, you will see a call to submit any summer activities you are planning and want to promote, as we get asked every year what opportunities are available for children and young people during the summer and so now include these in ‘FYI’ to make everything easier to access.
