The schedule has been programmed by Crewe Town Council in conjunction with Crewe Library and £10,000 of funding has been awarded towards the project by the National Lottery Community Fund. As part of the project evaluation, a series of ‘Community Conversations’ will be facilitated to identify the impact and inform the future direction of Operation Summer! A film showcasing the summer activities will also be recorded.

From circus skills to dance workshops, outdoor performers to nature activities – there is something for everyone this summer break. Encounter the Summer Lion and his friends, play some old-school wooden games, have a bubble-tastic time and don’t forget to strut your summer stuff at the Bhangra Dance workshops…

The full programme can be accessed via the Crewe Town Council Operation Summer! webpage or leaflets can be collected from Crewe Library and the Crewe Heritage Centre.

All of the activities are free-to-access family sessions. A small number of activities at Crewe Library require attendees to book a place on 01270 375295. For all events, children need to
be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Councillor Joe Cosby, Chair of the Marketing and Events Committee, commented “I’m delighted that Crewe Town Council has been able to arrange this fantastic summer
programme and gain the backing from a well-known organisation such as the National Lottery.

“With these wide-ranging activities there is hopefully something for everyone. From coding to story-telling sessions, dance workshops to heritage clubs, Operation Summer! is a great way to try out new activities or take part in existing interests over the summer break.

“A huge thank you to all of our partners for working with us to deliver for local families.”
