Free activity sessions for children in the Welshpool area will be held during the summer holidays, the county council has said, but the emergency childcare provision for key workers will end on July 24.

It was originally thought that the emergency childcare hubs would continue through to the new term in September, but instead Powys County Council has launched its Children’s Summer Sessions, which will be held every weekday afternoon from Monday, July 27 to Friday, August 26. 

The sessions will take place at eight venues across the county, including The Flash, and are aged for children aged five to 16.

The sessions, which will run in line with Welsh Government Covid-19 guidance, will be held Monday to Friday from 1.30-4.30pm. Places will be limited so parents must book their child’s place online.

As well as The Flash, sessions will also be held at other Freedom Leisure-run centres in Brecon, Newtown, Rhayader and Ystradgynlais as well Ysgol Bro Hyddgen (secondary campus), Llandrindod Wells Youth Centre and Knighton Primary School.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “Thanks to our partnerships with Freedom Leisure, Activ8Kids and the Urdd, we are able to provide summer holiday activities for children in venues across the county.

“For your child to attend, you must book a place online by Thursday for the following weeks sessions.

“We hope the children will enjoy the creative, fun and outdoor activities, make new friends and have a great time!”

Places are limited and will be allocated within Welsh Government guidance.
