South Derbyshire Summer Playscheme cancelled

This summer's summer activities for schoolchildren in South Derbyshire have been cancelled due to social distancing restrictions.

The scheme was due to take place between the 27 July and 28 August and would have offered over 100 sessions across the District.

Councillor Dan Pegg, Chair of Active South Derbyshire, said:

"It is with real sadness that we have made the decision to cancel this year's Summer Playscheme. More »

"I know it is very popular with children from across South Derbyshire and we looked at all the options before very reluctantly reaching the conclusion that it wasn't possible to deliver the activities while following social distancing guidelines.

"I hope that children in South Derbyshire will continue to remain active this summer while continuing to remain safe and socially distanced."

The South Derbyshire Summer Playschemes have been running for well over a decade and are a very popular service, with over 6,000 young people attending sessions each year which are delivered with funding from parish councils and the South Derbyshire Community Safety Partnership.

Active South Derbyshire plans to reschedule a number of these cancelled sessions, once restrictions are lifted, on evenings, weekends and during half term holidays.

To keep up to date with our service and any future sessions, check the Active South Derbyshire Facebook page: @ActiveSouthDerbyshire.
