Peterhead children can join the Polar Explorer’s Holiday Club this year when they break for summer.

The free children’s holiday club will be held at both the Salvation Army Hall in Windmill Street and St Andrews Church in Queen Street from Monday, July 6 to Friday, July 10.

All children between the ages of four and 12 years are invited to go along and enjoy a series of events, which will run from 10am to 12 noon each day.

There will be stories from the Bible, sports, games and music - plenty of fun guaranteed.

And, weather permitting, a sports session will be held at Peterhead Football Club.

It is hoped that many children will go along and enjoy a mini expedition each day and learn through the lives of characters from the Bible.

More than 30 volunteers have given up their time to run this year’s club and ensure it’s a hit with those going along.

Registration for the summer club will take place at the Salvation Army Hall on Monday, July 6, at 10am.

As well as the fun-packed programme of acitivities at the two centres, there will also be a family picnic at Aden Country Park, Mintlaw, on Saturday, July 11.

This will take place from 2pm to 4pm.

The week will round-off with a special family service in St Andrew’s church from 10.30am on Sunday, July 12 and all are welcome to both these events.

St. Andrew’s Church held its very first holiday club back in July 2011, when 80 children attended.

The event has grown in popularity with parents and children each year since.
