Children get a pizza the action in Fartown
A playscheme has helped children from Fartown keep busy during the summer holidays.
Caroline Joseph, one of Kirklees Council’s Community Rangers, organised the event as part of the Rangers And Police Together (RAPT) programme.
Children aged between six and 11 years have taken part in a range of activities based at Fartown Pavilion and the Village Hall.
They have enjoyed arts and crafts workshops, played indoor and outdoor games and experienced cook and eat sessions, where they prepared lunch on that day.
This included pizza, potato wedges and smoothies.
Funding for the project came from Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, ward councillors, Asda which provided fruit and orange juice, and the SEAT garage on Bradford Road which gave cash for the cook and eat sessions.
Caroline thanked the Muslim community, which now has a mosque at Fartown pavilion, for providing a venue for the scheme at short notice.
She started a similar scheme in Newsome and it is now in its fourth year.
