Food and fun sessions are proving popular with local children

Children at eligible primary schools in the county borough have been thoroughly enjoying the ‘Food and Fun’ programme this summer.

The programme, which is fully funded by Welsh Government and facilitated by the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) and the council, provides a range of physical activity, enrichment, skill building, nutrition education and healthy meals to children during the school holidays. Children from Abercerdin, Litchard and Ffaldau primary schools have been taking part in various activities such as cooking, circus performing, karaoke and dance lessons.
