A council-run school holiday club has unveiled an action-packed week of activities for the October half-term break.

 Oscars, based at West Hartlepool Rugby Club on Catcote Road, has lined up a series of activities for children aged three to 16 from Monday, October 26, to Friday, October 30.

 The service, which has been running for more than 20 years, has been hailed as “outstanding” by Ofsted inspectors.

  Sandra Robinson, the Council’s Out of School Coordinator, said: “The team have put together a varied programme which includes fun with food, sports and games, film and toy day plus visits to Summerhill and Burn Valley Gardens.

 “We are going to round the week off with a Halloween Party when children will have the option to come in fancy dress and we’ll have some prizes for the best costumes.

 “Our experienced team are great with the children and everyone is looking forward to the half-term programme.

 “As a parent myself, I know how difficult it can be to balance working and looking after the children and hopefully Oscars exists to provide help and support to 
parents.

 During the half-term break, parents can drop off their children from 8am with breakfast provided for them on arrival. They then embark on an action-packed day of fun being collected by parents by 5.45pm.

 Oscars also operate an after-school service on weekdays which involves children being collected from school and transported to the Catcote Road centre where they take part in a wide range of activities
