Free Summer Holiday Activities Popular Once Again

Shildon AFC has this week been hosting free summer holiday activities in partnership with Livin, Bishop Auckland & Shildon Area Action Partnership and Shildon Alive.

The programme of activities has once again proved very popular, with all the places on this years scheme fully booked.  The programme was open to boys and girls aged 8-12 years and was packed with fun exercise and the opportunity to train and play football with Shildon AFC, along with a healthy lunch provided by Shildon Alive – all free of charge.

Thursday, (12th August 2021) was the final day of the programme and the children were presented with t-shirts and sweets as a thank-you for taking part.

However all the children taking part should be proud of how they participated in making the programme so enjoyable.








Once again thanks to our partners for their support and to Greggs for the bread provisions.
