Food and Fun for children in Neath Port Talbot

More than 300 schoolchildren across Neath Port Talbot attended a ‘Food and Fun’ School Holiday Enrichment Programme during the summer holidays to encourage them to keep healthy and active.

Pupils from Melin Primary School, Awel Y Mor Primary School, Upper Afan Federation Cymmer Afan, Ysgol Cwm Brombil and Ysgol Bae Baglan attended the scheme which was organised by Neath Port Talbot Council’s Youth Service.

Everyone who attended had the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of physical and fun activities as well as learning about the importance of healthy eating. Plus, each day everyone got a healthy breakfast and lunch.

Run over a three week period, each school provided a range of activities, and the Youth Service also linked up with Swansea University, University of Wales Trinity St David, Andrew Scott LTD, Arts & Crafts, Play Work and Cricket Wales to deliver different sessions for the children.

Councillor Peter Rees, Neath Port Talbot’s Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Culture, said: “I am pleased that we have once again been able to deliver the Food and Fun scheme to children in Neath Port Talbot.

“These are difficult times for everyone so it is more important than ever that we continue to give children opportunities to make friends, gain new skills and most importantly, have fun.”

The Food and Fun scheme is delivered in partnership with the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA).
