Councillors pay for children's holiday

34 Kingswood children enjoyed an adventure holiday this weekend, courtesy of their local councillors. The Labour councillors for Kings Chase ward used £2,900 from a budget delegated to them for community projects to fund the three-day visit to Barton Camp in the Mendips. Nine adult volunteers went along to ensure that the youngsters could enjoy the swimming, walking, sports and teambuilding activities offered at the campsite.

The councillors said that they wanted to give the group of 8-11 year olds an opportunity to broaden their experiences, and worked closely with the Dreamscheme holiday activity club and the local charity Bristol Children’s Help Society to organise the visit.

Speaking on their return to Kingswood, Councillor Pat Apps said:

“It was great to be able to use our delegated fund to give this group of children a positive experience away at a camp. They got stuck into the activities and I believe all concerned had an enjoyable time away. This is a worthwhile venture and all local children deserve to have the best opportunities made available to them.”
