Holiday Scheme Success

FAMILIES from the Dick’s Hill area in Stranraer have been involved in their very own action-packed summer holiday programme for the third consecutive year.

Thanks to the allocation of Quality of Life funding from Dumfries and Galloway Council, the Parents Activity Group were able to plan and organise the timetable of activities for eight days of the school holidays.

Family Learning Co-ordinator David Hodder led the venture, offering guidance to the group with support provided from Stranraer Active schools Co-ordinator, Ann Ferguson.

Park Primary School again hosted the Friday activity days. As always, local chef Douglas Lisi was on hand to support the scheme delivering his mouth-watering cookery classes and the arts and crafts workshops proved very popular with the children once again.

There were also a variety of options for the children in the physical activity front. The Council’s Leisure and Sport staff led multi- activity sessions, with Johnny Glover offering yoga and Neil Farroll running tennis classes.

Thanks must go to Park School teachers Alana Dobie and Gillian Dickson for their time and contributions throughout the holiday period.

On the Thursdays, a series of trips were arranged to various local destinations, which saw sandcastle competitions, beach relay races, and rounders high on the agenda.
