Children and young people across North Lincolnshire are already enjoying an action-packed programme of fun and food this summer, thanks to Government cash.

At every event in the Fuelled programme, children will enjoy a nourishing and tasty meal as well as learning more about healthy eating, all while developing new skills and making new friends.

The activities are free for eligible children with a Fuelled postcard. There is a cost for some activities for children who are not eligible.

To find out more see what activities are taking place near you, and to book your place, visit our website.

As the programme enters its second week there are a huge variety of activities to take part in.

Children based in the Killingholme and Ulceby area could become a desert explorer on Monday 2 August as The Science and Technology club build shelters and try to blow them down in sandstorm winds.  Look out for a special version of a Bushtucker trial.

Across in Barton there are still a couple of spaces left on the Sports Leader course for 12 to 15 year olds. This national qualification is a fantastic opportunity for young people who are interested in going into sport in the future and will enable them to lead sessions under supervision.  The South Bank Players are also running a camp which involves Taiko Drumming, acting and crafts at Trinity Church for ages eight to 16.

If your child prefers dance to sport then Kimberley Performing Arts Centre (KPAC) are running a dance leaders course across the holiday, which starts on Tuesday 3 August for 13 to 19 year olds. Places can be booked directly with KPAC at info@kimberleyperformingarts.co.uk

Other activities running for young people aged five to 16 in Scunthorpe are Twin Tigers martial arts (Tae kwon do, kickboxing, self-defence) and multi-sports in Crosby with Your Wellbeing.

North Lincolnshire Council teamed up with local schools, businesses, clubs and community and voluntary sector organisations to organise the scheme, which has been commissioned as part of the Government’s £220m Holiday Activities and Food Programme.

On the Isle there are also a range of activities with a few places left for eight to 16 year olds.  On Tuesday 3 August the Science and Technology club are at Crowle Market Hall with their desert explorer experience.  There is also multi-sports at the Godnow road ground.  Epworth Colts are running a football and sports camp on the 3G pitches at South Axholme Academy.

For those looking for an activity to do as a family Helpful Hampers are at Althorpe and Keadby school running a multi-activity holiday and cooking club for ages five to 11 years old.

In Brigg, independent book shop The Rabbit Hole are running a range of activities at The Angel including an illustration workshop for young people who like drawing.  Multi-sports is also running at Brigg recreation ground.
