Ready Steady Worcestershire is working hard to ensure families across the county, who receive free school meals whilst at school will continue to receive support over the Christmas break.

An activity booking system is now live on the dedicated Ready Steady Worcestershire website and gives families information about a range of free Christmas activities they can attend, and new activities are being added every day.

The team have been partnering up with holiday clubs, activity providers and family days out all over the county for a fun, action packed Christmas Holiday period.

Activities available to families in receipt of Free School Meals include free tickets for Pantomime at Malvern, Redditch (Palace) and Worcester Theatres, sessions at the Swan Theatre School, swim sessions, and fitness fun sessions.

Ready Steady Worcestershire has also commissioned 3000 activity packs for children which include games, colouring activities, activity cards, and treats for children between the ages of 5 and 11.  There are also activities to download on the Ready, Steady, Worcestershire webpage.

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “It’s fantastic to see the Ready Steady Worcestershire team are able to build on the progress they have made so far, supporting families across the county, who receive free school meals whilst at school during the Christmas holidays. The number of different activities that the team have worked hard with partners to be able to provide over the Christmas break is great, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved for their efforts. As a parent myself, I know how hard yet rewarding the Christmas period can be, so I would encourage parents to keep an eye on the RSW website, and make some memories over the Christmas period.”

Ready Steady Worcestershire is an information hub, providing information about food, activities and support available during the school holidays.
