Can you help provide summer holiday activities for Norfolk children?

A scheme that provides children and young people eligible for free school meals with summer holiday activities is appealing for more providers to get involved.

Following the success of the Easter Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme, which saw over 7,000 families access food and activity boxes and an online programme of music, cookery, and craft, as well as over 500 attending activity sessions in schools, plans are now underway for the summer holidays.

Active Norfolk, in partnership with Norfolk County Council, is offering funding for more local activity providers, including venues, schools, and other community organisations, to help deliver the programme across the county, especially in Great Yarmouth. 

The face-to-face activities, which could include everything from arts and music to cookery and sports, will take place over a minimum of four days each week, for four hours a day and include a nutritious meal.

Providers can learn more and express their interest by Sunday, May 23 at

Families who currently claim means-tested free school meals are invited to register their interest for the Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme at

  1. Hasseröder Ferienpark

    The Hasseröder holiday park in Wernigerode is quite rightly called the “colorful park on the Brocken”, because here you immerse yourself in a varied, multicolored holiday world. The region has a lot to offer you both in terms of landscape with the Brocken and the many national parks, as well as culturally with the historic cities of Wernigerode and Quedlinburg.

    The leisure activities in the Hasseröder holiday park One thing is certain: there is no boredom at the Hasseröder holiday park - neither for the children nor the adults. This is ensured not least by the spectacular bathing paradise with its 104-meter-long “Magic Eye” water slide, the grotto landscape and the white water channel. In a separate area with a colorful rainbow slide, even very small bathers can splash around. Enjoy relaxing hours in the sauna and wellness world "Hexenkessel". The Hasseröder leisure world with a play cave, event cinema, indoor play hall and SKY sports bar provides additional good mood. Golf, bowling, billiards or darts, while your children are having fun in the children's club - this is not a problem at the Hasseröder holiday park. A sports field provides basketball and football fun in the open air. In the central main building there is a varied gastronomy with an attached beer garden.
    The area around the Hasseröder holiday park In addition to the great leisure activities in the Hasseröder holiday park, the scenic surroundings also have a lot to offer. The location on the wooded northern edge of the Harz low mountain range is predestined for hiking excursions, Nordic walking or mountain bike tours. The Harz mountain railways' steam locomotives stop very close to the holiday park and take you up to the famous Brocken at a leisurely pace. A visit to the historic old town and the castle of Wernigerode is also recommended. By the way, you can use the city bus for free. The inner cities of Goslar and Quedlinburg, which are worth seeing, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
