Wolverhampton's biggest ever Yo! Wolves summer programme is now in full flow, with thousands of children and young people signing up to take part.

Among the many providers delivering holiday events is Ready, Set, Acti-Fit, which is offering dance, multi sports, cookery and arts and crafts for children aged 5 and over at Low Hill Community Centre.

Councillor Christopher Burden, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education, said: “I was delighted to visit Ready, Set, Acti-Fit and see how much the children were enjoying themselves. 

“It’s great to get out and see for myself some of our local providers, volunteers and organisations which are working so hard with us to continue to build a huge range of opportunities for our city’s children and young people through Yo! Wolves.”

Hayley Miller, Project Manager at Ready, Set, Acti-Fit, added: “We were delighted to welcome Councillor Burden and show him our offer this summer to children and young people in Wolverhampton.

“We are very pleased to be part of the Yo! Wolves programme and to provide a safe environment for children and young people to socialise, have fun and learn new skills during the long summer holidays.”  

The Ready, Set, Acti-Fit programme is just one element of this year’s Yo! Wolves summer programme, offering hundreds of activities available across the city to children and young people with a Holiday Activities Fund (HAF) code, co-funded by the Department for Education, along with a comprehensive selection of free and paid for activities open to everyone. 

They include sports, arts and crafts, dance and drama workshops, fun days, free activities are on offer at WV Active and around 50 Summer Reading Challenge events in libraries. There is also a range of activities that are SEND inclusive for children and young people with SEND. For more details and to book, please visit Yo!Wolves

Councillor Burden added: “We know how difficult school holidays can be for many families at the best of times and we hope our biggest ever Yo! Wolves programme is giving parents a little extra support this summer.”
