Community Trust chief executive officer Dan White said: “Our camps are a fantastic way for children from across the city to meet other youngsters with similar interests to them.

“The holiday camps have really taken off over the last 18 months or so which is fantastic to see, and hopefully we can grow further in the near future to accommodate for more participants.

“The facilities available are superb, which adds to the experience. It is amazing to see so many local children keeping active during the school holidays, having fun in a safe, friendly and organised environment.

“We already have a number of youngsters booked on to our half-term camp which is hugely encouraging, it’s set to be another fantastic occasion. If you want to get involved, I encouraged you to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
