News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

Wiltshire Council’s Holiday Activity and Food programme, FUEL, is back for the Christmas holidays following a summer of success which saw activities delivered across the county.

Wiltshire Council’s Holiday Activity and Food programme, FUEL (Food, Unity, Energy and Laughter) is funded by the Department for Education and provides children who are eligible for the programme with free access to activity, food and nutritional education during school holidays.

Following a challenging summer, which saw its main provider cease trading, Wiltshire Council worked with a range of organisations to ensure families didn’t miss out. More than 1,300 young people took part in sessions and nearly 10,000 nutritious meals were provided. Many of the same organisations will once again be supporting the council to provide activities for the FUEL programme during the Christmas school holiday.

The council will be working with:

  • PH Sports
  • Dayla Equine Assisted Learning and Monksley Ltd
  • Elevation X Ltd
  • UK S Futures
  • Revolution Performing Arts Ltd
  • The Pound Arts Trust Ltd
  • Seeds4Success
  • Magna Learning Partnership
  • Sam Ivin Photography
  • West Wilts Gymnastics and Fitness
  • Next Thing Education Ltd
  • Wiltshire Outdoor Learning Team

In addition to the above activities, the council will once again be offering provision specifically for individuals with SEND. These activities will take place in Corsham and Salisbury.
