A Bucks Council spokesperson said: “Whether your child is interested in art, football, technology, music or something else, there is an activity for every age and interest.

“For some children, these sessions will allow them to expand on a pre-existing interest and further develop skills they may already have; for others, the sessions will provide them with the opportunity to learn something completely new.”

Each session includes a healthy hot meal.

More information can be found on the council's website.

Councillor Anita Cranmer said: “The Buckinghamshire HAF programme is a brilliant opportunity for eligible children to develop an existing skill, or hone in on something they may be already interested in.

“We know that the long summer break can be a source of stress and worry for some families. The HAF programme can provide some extra support where it is needed, by enabling children to socialise with friends, providing hot nutritious meals and helping children to learn new skills and keep active throughout the summer.”

“Our HAF places are always incredibly popular. I would encourage parents and carers to get their children booked on to their desired HAF clubs using the booking codes received from their children’s schools.”
