Free fun, free lunch and loads to do at Family Fun Hubs

Wednesday 10 July 2019

The council has set up a network of free Family Fun Hubs to encourage reading, play and family time during the school holidays.

On offer are games, crafts, books, fun and a light lunch for everyone who comes along.

The Family Fun Hubs, organised by Inverclyde Council, are open to parents, carers, grandparents, other family members and, of course, children!

The hubs are aimed at nursery and primary age children and operate on a drop-in basis with a wide range of times, dates and venues available. Full details are on the council’s website.

They run until 9 August and are based at: Aileymill Primary School, The Beacon, Blairmore Nursery School, Branchton Community Centre, Broomhill Gardens, Craigmarloch Primary School, Kings Oak Primary School, Lady Alice Primary School, Newark Primary School, the Rainbow Family Centre and St John’s Primary School.

Councillor Jim Clocherty, Convener of Inverclyde Council’s Education & Communities Committee, said, “There is such a thing as a free lunch after all! Our Family Fun Hubs provide a wide range of activities for younger children while also helping them develop their reading and counting skills.

“Importantly the hubs also involve parents, carers and grandparents. There’s a lot of evidence that shows that reading to children, and getting involved in their learning, can make a major contribution to how well they do at school.”
