For the second summer in a row I visited the Inspire Centre on Lindbergh Road today. . Last summer Ipswich was a pilot for the Holiday activities and food programme and now its been extended across the country its back again this summer.
Eligible children are entitled to 15 days of food and activities over the summer holiday. I was very pleased when the Government announced their intention to turn the pilots into a more permanent scheme and that the great work I saw last summer could be continued.
I think its important that as many young people as possible many who have missed lots of time at school are able to benefit from these sorts of activities and programmes. Good for both physical and mental health, learning and of course they get a nutritious meal.
Well done to everyone at Inspire Suffolk who is working so hard to make this happen. And the goalie who managed to save 2/3 of my questionable penalties.
