No need to be feeling blue this winter in Oldham

Arts & Education

Don't let the Winter Blues get you down in Oldham.

There's no need to be feeling blue this winter in Oldham with so much to do, activity wise. 

Free places available for children aged between 5 & 16, with additional spaces at a small cost also available. The Borough's Holiday Activities and Food programme took place over the festive season but is set to continue throughout the year. 

Several games and sports as well as art, craft workshops and cooking – even trips are just some of the things that local people can take advantage of. 

The children were provided with a hot meal as well as the activity. 

The programme first began in Easter last year and aims to support young people to socialise with others in the area of a similar age. Learning something new and having fun at the same time. This offers local families on low incomes support which is needed. 

There has been extra funding provided which will allow the programme to continue and for people to enjoy the benefits of such. 

Local activity providers can get in touch if they are interested in getting involved as the next lot of events are planned.
