Holiday Activities



Active Barnsley will again be running a Healthy Holidays Club at Shaw Lane Sports Club in the Christmas holidays. This is part of the Holiday Activities & Food Programme 2022, funded by Barnsley Council, which aims to provide children that are entitled to means tested free school meals, with free activities and a lunch during the school holidays.

The club will provide a wide variety of fun activities each day, with a focus on multi-sports, and plenty of arts, crafts and games options mixed in.

Venue: Shaw Lane Sports Club, Shaw Lane, Barnsley S70 6HZ

Dates: Monday 19th to Wednesday 21st December 2022

Time: 9am - 3pm

For: Children aged 7 - 14 years

Places are currently only able to be booked by children that are entitled to free school meals. If there are any places remaining before the start of the holidays, these will be opened up to all children. We will communicate this availability, both on this page and on our Facebook site.

A booking is only confirmed if you receive a confirmation email.

All places are strictly by pre-booking only, there will be no walk-up availability on the day.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer additional support to children during our sessions. Please contact Barnsley MBC for suitable provision if your child requires any additional support.

There will be a free daily lunch provided, with the choice of a hot or cold option. The menu will be available to view on the morning of each session. Unfortunately we are not able to cater for individual dietary requirements.
