Letter from Director of Children’s Services

Sent on behalf of Steven Quinn, Director of Children’s Services

Good evening,

First of all, my apologies for sending this information so near to the holidays. Unfortunately, it is only now that the programme has been confirmed.

The Renfrewshire Get into Summer programme starts on Monday 28 June.

A wide range of fun-filled, free activities will be available across Renfrewshire for children and young people aged 5 to 25 to enjoy as part of the government funded summer programme.

The programme is designed to improve the wellbeing of children, young people and families, and has been organised by the Council’s Community Learning and Development service and Renfrewshire Leisure Limited.

The council will be raising awareness of the programme through its social media channels. A Facebook event to promote it was set up on the council’s page this morning and posts about the programme will be published on its Facebook and Twitter accounts at 9pm tonight.

If your school has a social media account, it would be greatly appreciated if you could share these posts and event on it this week. However, and I stress, only if you have the time available to do so.

More information about the programme can be found at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/get-into-summer and we will be sending a text to all parents with a link to this information.

A list of local activities is available on the Young Scot (https://young.scot/renfrewshire) and Renfrewshire Leisure websites.
