Bookings have opened for free summer activity spaces for eligible children on the Isle of Wight.

Across the Island, organisations are coordinating a range of healthy activities as part of the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme.

Designed for children aged five to 16, the activities range from sports coaching, multi-sport games, performing arts, to animal care and crafts, all providing a nutritious meal.

Priority placement is given to children on benefits-related free school meals, but paid-for places and spaces for other vulnerable families are also available.
