Asha’s half term playscheme launched

Asha Neighbourhood Project‘s autumn half term play scheme is due to take place for one week starting on Monday 30 October to Wednesday 1 November.

The playscheme is for children aged 5-12 years living in South Leeds and features arts and crafts, a cinema trip, and outdoor play in Cross Flatts Park .

Bookings will be taken on Monday 23 October from 9.30am to 2.30pm at the Asha Centre, 43 Stratford Street, Beeston. Places are limited so it is on a first come, first served basis. The fee, which must be paid at the time of booking, is £12 per week per child.
