Airplay Summer Success

The Airplay Summer Activities have been a great success this year.

After looking at feedback from previous years of activities and with having a relatively new staff team we decided this year to keep activities local and low cost and it obviously worked! With over 160 attendances throughout the 4 weeks of activities we can say it has been our best year yet.

Activities were themed on a weekly basis and took part on the afternoons of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week. Week one was a week of Arts and Crafts held at the Clinton Park Community Centre, young people were given the opportunity to get messy and make a variety of masterpieces to either take home or leave at the Community Centre for display. Week two was held at Youthworx in Coningsby village and was a week of cookery, enabling young people to develop their cooking abilities and learn recipes they could easily produce at home. Week 3 saw young people out and about with trips to Tattershall Castle where they learnt about life in medieval times. Young people turned in to nature detectives whilst playing in Carr Woods and the last day of the week saw young people having a view at life at RAF Coningsby. The final week of activities was Olympic themed and had young people developing their sporting abilities by taking part in a variety of sports including dressage on hobby horses!

We have received positive feedback from young people and parents and would welcome any constructive feedback in relation to developing Airplay holiday provision further.
