THE Council’s awardwinning holiday school meals service returns over the Easter break.

Lunches will be served every day from Tuesday, April 3 to Friday, April 13 at a number of locations right across North Ayrshire.

As well as providing a nutritious meal, an hour of physical activity will be provided during the sessions to allow the children to have fun and a run around with their friends – ensuring they stay fit and active outwith the school term.

Councillor Jim Montgomerie, Cabinet Member for Place, said: “In December we approved plans to make North Ayrshire Scotland’s first “Child Centred” Council.

“The holiday school meals initiative is going from strength to strength and is now firmly established over our four holiday periods. It also underlines our absolute commitment to putting children first.”

Activities take place from 11.30am-12.30pm and lunches are served from 12.30pm -1pm.

All pupils can access the service at the school or community centre closest to them and it will cost just £2 - or is free to those who are entitled to free school meals.
