Summer Off The Streets Is A Ray Of Sunshine

Dozens of children have been delighted with the ‘Life’s a Beach’ dance and drama sessions this month, part of Cotswold District Council’s Summer off the Streets programme.

‘Life’s a Beach’ is a story of pirates and fantasy using dance, drama and prop-making as part of a four week performance project being held every Tuesday afternoon (1pm-3pm) at the Cotswold School, Bourton-on-the-Water.

Using Big Lottery funding, Cotswold District Council is working in partnership with Gloucestershire Dance and freelance artists to provide the project free of charge to children and young people aged 8-16.

Two thoroughly enjoyable dance, drama and mask-making sessions were provided on August 4th and August 11th, with two further sessions available, both free of charge, on August 18th and 25th.

Claire Dowan, Youth Participation and Development Officer at Cotswold District Council said: "We are having great fun creating our story, imagining the weather is hot and enjoying Summer off the Streets!"

Rosemary Lynn, Community, Health & Housing manager at Cotswold District Council said: "Summer off the Streets is a very successful programme of free activities for young people during the summer holidays.

"We try to offer something for everyone and all tastes and ‘Life’s a beach!’ has gone down very well with those with artistic talents."

For further details of this or any other of the projects taking place as part of Summer off the Streets, please contact Claire Dowan on 01285 623568, by email, claire.dowan@cotswold.gov.uk or visit the Cotswold District Council website, www.cotswold.gov.uk
