Good Food + A space to Create + confidence = positivity

Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) 

In Spring 2021 the government launched the Holiday Activities and Food programme and we were delighted to run two pilot programmes during the Easter holidays at Robsack Wood Primary Academy in St Leonards and at The Pelham in Sidley.

This summer we delivered 13 clubs across Eastbourne, Sidley and St Leonards, working in partnership with local schools and Heart of Sidley, We put on an action packed programme of summer clubs for for 5-16 year olds which included street art, arts and crafts, music, poetry and football, power hooping, piloxing and creative tech. All of this could not happen without the input of an amazing team of professional artists and arts organisations. Over 20 individuals led sessions this summer.

This winter we worked alongside Heart of Sidley again to deliver festive holiday clubs in Sidley as well as delivery of our own at the Tilekiln Community Centre in Hollington. It has been great to be able to keep this offer going and begin to know the children and families that attend.

"Can we come everyday? 

"I feel more confident to express myself"

“Angel had great fun and lots of care and interaction from staff. She spoke out for the first time in an interview and now loves vegi burgers”


“Absolutely delighted with the programme. My son loved it! I wouldn’t have been able to afford clubs during the holidays, so I am grateful for this programme.”
