YOUNGSTERS can get stuck into a week of activities as part of a summer club in Bishop Auckland.

The Bishop Auckland Fellowship of Christian Churches, in partnership with the Auckland Project, is holding its Holiday Club for five to 15-year-olds from Monday, August 6, until Friday, August 10.

It comes following a successful event last year which was attended by up to 50 children and young people.

Held at Bishop Auckland Methodist Church, on Cockton Hill, sessions will run daily from 2pm until 5pm.

Participants are promised “fun, friendship, food and fitness”. A family fun day from 2pm until 5pm will follow on the Saturday.

A Bishop Auckland and Shildon Methodist Circuit spokesperson said: “We couldn’t run the event without a team of volunteers who among other things run the groups and prepare and serve food. We are also extremely grateful for the help from the local community, especially with the financial input which enables us to keep costs to families low.”

The cost for the week is £5 per child or £8 for two siblings and £10 for three.
