Cramlington Town Council’s Youth Network Co-ordinator Steve Beaty said: “The Town Council’s summer holiday provision is designed to reach as many children as possible – all ages and all abilities and it’s FREE! I’m sure it will prove to be very popular, spaces are limited and bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis so don’t delay – book your places as soon as possible”.
“We will also be promoting other local activities throughout the summer holidays. If other activity providers get in touch we will be happy to share and promote their events too.”
