Have an egg-cellent Easter with the new FUELLED family activity programme

09:14, Tuesday, 13th April 2021

An exciting new activity programme has been launched to help families in North Lincolnshire make the most of the Easter holidays.

As part of the project, called FUELLED, thousands of activity guides have been distributed to families through schools and settings.

The guides are packed full of fun, family-friendly activities.

Young people can get their adrenaline pumping in a live streamed fitness class or cook up a storm in the free family cooking workshops.

Children can get creative and enter the special spring sunflower competitions, writing a poem or designing a piece of art for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

Young scientists are sure to love the amazing experiments, creating an exploding lunch bag or sock bubble blower.

The guides also include a range of activities to help families explore the beautiful open spaces of North Lincolnshire from their doorstep, through easy-to-follow walks and nature scavenger hunts.

A free FUELLED activity trail can be picked up at your local Community Hub for families to enjoy. Any forms that are returned to the hub will be entered into a prize draw.

Baysgarth Park in Barton-upon-Humber and Central Park in Scunthorpe will host free FUELLED Park Fit – a 10 station exercise circuit. As you run, jog, or walk your way around the 800m circuit look out for numbered Park Fit signposts. Park Fit will launch on 9 April at Baysgarth Park and 16 April at Central Park.

StreetSport and cooking sessions in kitchens within North Lincolnshire Community Hubs will follow the latest Covid-19 guidelines and are available free to any young person. Please call 01724 297000 to book your place.
