A message from Gloucestershire County Council

We would like to make you aware of some of the schemes that Gloucestershire County Council is currently offering to families of Gloucestershire. 

We are making arrangements for our Easter Holiday Activity and Food programme. This is a government-funded programme that aims to ensure that children on free school meals can access food and activities over the Easter break.

For secondary-aged children on free school meals, we are offering:

·         A choice of a food hamper (meat-based or vegetarian-based) that can be collected at one of two community centres, Oasis Centre in Hesters Way or Oakley Resource Centre.

·         The option to collect your own food hamper from one of Cheltenham’s community food pantries.

Both options will be subject to availability and are offered on a one-per family basis.

We would like you to book which food option you would like by using the link below by 3pm Monday 4 April.

Sorry but we will not be able to take email bookings. If you have not yet registered on the system, you will need to create an account – there is more information here if you need any help:

Registering on the system will also give you the opportunity to book a range of other activities that will go live from Monday 28 March.

Many thanks
