Over the school holidays, Sidings Community Centre in north-west Camden is running two holiday schemes for primary school-aged students (5 to 11 years old) and secondary school-aged students (11 to 16 years old).

The centre is providing a Kitchen Social free food hub – offering free hot meals, fruit and healthy snacks to children attending the schemes. Activities will include arts workshops, sports and fitness sessions, and for older youth members, outings and trips to COVID-19 safe venues.

Jo McMillan, Siding’s Youth Project Co-ordinator (pictured), said: “We hope the schemes will help improve mental and physical health, and combat the boredom and loneliness some may have faced during months off school.”

The centre has remained in constant touch with its members during lockdown, and its online methods for keeping in touch, such as videos, computer courses and online chat groups, have proved such a success that many online activities will continue to run post lockdown.
