Easter holidays free food takeaway & family activities

25 Mar 2022

During the Easter school break, we're delighted to be back with our holiday food programme. Running from Monday 4 to Friday 15 April (weekdays only) we will be giving out free breakfasts and bags to children and their families to take away and eat at home. 

Collection from Platform, The Bridge, from 11.30am until all bags are gone – allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early to collect as bags go very quickly. Bags will include dishes such as Penne Bolognaise, Spanish Chicken and Rice, Cheesy Beano Pie and Mac & Cheese as well as fruit, crisps, drinks and sweet treats.

Please come to the main entrance at 1000 Westerhouse Road, next to the car park. We please ask you to wear a mask when queuing/collecting and to be mindful of social distancing.

We also have some fun and free family activities taking place over the holidays. These are aimed at those age 5 - 11yrs but are suitable for the whole family to join in! These are offered on a first come, first served basis on the day and available until supplies/spaces run out. Please sign up on the day for that day's activities whilst attending the food takeaway.
