Monmouthshire’s leisure provider MonLife is gearing up for the exciting February half term, with plenty on offer to keep children and young people active and entertained over the school holidays. The activities wil kick off on Monday 21st February and run until Friday 25th. A full list of what’s on offer can be found on the website at www.monlifeholildayactivities.co.uk and there is something for everyone.
As part of the Winter of Wellbeing funding from Welsh Government, MonLife Learning will be carrying out a number of different sessions across Monmouthshire including making a ‘mindful mosaic’, creating a wellbeing jar as well as mindful colouring inspired by the museum’s collections. MonLife will also be staging a wide range of play events for local communities, for children and families to come along to. These events are free to attend, so to register you interest via the website. Please note that parental supervision is required for children under the age of 11.
The Monmouthshire Games will also be taking place and are aimed at children between the ages of 5 and 11 and offers activities to suit a range of different interests and hobbies. The sessions run from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday. All activities will be delivered in accordance with National Governing Body guidelines for each sport and will be COVID-19 compliant. The Monmouthshire Games are available to all young people in Monmouthshire, including any children of families visiting Monmouthshire on holiday. Each site has 50 spaces available per day and parents are being encouraged to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing and Social Justice, Councillor Lisa Dymock said: “The MonLife holiday activities are so important to our children and young people, and are designed to promote wellbeing as well as mental and physical health. After nearly 18 months of having lockdowns and restrictions, our younger generations have missed out on people able to have fun, socialise and be active. Spaces fill up very quick so I would encourage parents to sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
