YOUNGSTERS had a cracking time over the Easter school holidays at a popular playscheme.

Oscars’s after school club and holiday programme reported increased numbers of young people for the Easter holidays.

They have taken part in everything from trips to the cinema and days out to making a variety of crafts at their Catcote Road base in Hartlepool.

The council-run playscheme, for children aged from three to 16, is popular with working parents.

Claire Gibson, Oscar’s assistant co-ordinator, said: “It has been really popular these holidays and we have been almost full on quite a few days.

“We have had lots of new children who have really enjoyed what they have done and then they have recommended it to their friends.

“We have been doing lots of Easter themed activities like making hot cross buns and also been making jewellery and been on trips out to the cinema and a local farm.”

Other activities in the packed programme includes a ‘onesie’ day, fashion show, Easter egg hunt, plus visits to Ward Jackson, Summerhill Country Park.

Oscar’s finishes today but will be back for the Whit half term week in May.
