Summer of Fun 2022 

The Vale of Glamorgan Council in partnership with a range of community organisations are organising the Summer of Fun programme. This is a programme of fun, free activities for children and young people aged up to 25 years. The programme is funded by Welsh Government and aims to support the wellbeing of children and young people to continue their recovery from the Covid restrictions of the last two years, with the added benefit of supporting families with the costs of activities over the summer holidays.

 

Please Note: Vale of Glamorgan Council can not be held liable for the services provided by any external organisation named in this programme. The listing of an organisation does not imply that the Vale of Glamorgan Council endorse that organisation, nor does the absence of any organisation imply that we do not support it.
