Summer in the City has just been published by the tri-borough partnership of Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F), Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC. It lists hundreds of summer events, groups and clubs for children and young people in central and west London.
Have you been wondering what your children can do this summer? The council suggests using its 128 pages of summer fun
Now in its third year, the 128-page guide has become a must-have summer planner for working parents and young fun-seekers alike.
The guide is being sent to 60,000 school pupils in Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F), Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) and is jam-packed with things to do during July and August.
Children and young people in all three boroughs can now choose from a huge range of social events, arts and music projects and sporting fun, across all three boroughs. This is the guide you need for summer holiday activities for toddlers, children and teens
The guide covers everything from street dancing to pro make-up master-classes and senior and junior football tournaments to museum outings it means there will be no need to get bored over the six week break. The dozens of events will run from July 20th until September 1st and across Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham and Kensington and Chelsea for ages three to 19.
Westminster Councillor Danny Chalkley, Cabinet member for Children's Services, said: "One of the advantages of the three councils coming together is we can offer a broader range of activities.
"If an event is taking place in one of the other partner boroughs is that if there are places available they can pop along and join in.
"It gives parents and teenagers a lot more choice and flexibility over the whole summer. Have fun."
"Summer in the City is just one of the major success stories resulting from London's three leading councils sharing services," says Cllr Helen Binmore, Cabinet Member for Children's Services in Hammersmith & Fulham. "Nearly all the exciting activities are free and by producing one combined guide instead of three separate ones, we have slashed production costs, just one example of how sharing services has enabled the three councils to achieve three of the lowest council tax rates in the country.
"I hope everyone taking part in activities, joining groups and playing sport has a wonderful summer and that this guide will help make their holidays interesting and memorable."
