Children and young people will be spoilt for choice this February half term as the WV Holiday Squad returns.

The popular programme has over 90 events and activities to keep youngsters and their families engaged and entertained between Saturday 15 and Sunday 23 February. Find out what's happening where by visiting WV Holiday Squad 2020

The wide ranging programme is co-ordinated by the City of Wolverhampton Council, with events delivered by the council and key partners across the city. 

Among the highlights are Gruffalo Family Adventures at Wildside Activity Centre on Monday 17 February, Retro video gaming at Wednesfield Library on Tuesday 18 February, a Nerf Party at the Mander Centre on Friday 21 February and various Frozen 2 themed swim sessions at WV Active Central and WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams during the holidays.

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "We had a fantastic response to the WV Holiday Squad programmes we offered last year, and we are delighted to be back with even more fantastic activities this half term.

"Most of the events are free, and there are also details of activities for children with special educational needs and disabilities."

WV Holiday Squad is one of a number of ways in which the council is reprioritising spending and resources, through its new Youth Engagement Strategy, #YES, in order to better support the city's children and young people. 

Councillor Reynolds added: "Children and young people have told us very clearly that they want to see more local, community based provision which is open to all, and so it's great to see that there is so much going on for youngsters this February."

Organisations which are holding activities for children and young people in Wolverhampton during the February half term are being encouraged to submit details for inclusion on the WV Holiday Squad website as soon as possible.
