City of Wolverhampton Council is committed to delivering summer activities for our children, families and young people. The health and wellbeing of our residents is always our top priority and we are keeping all activities under review in light of the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Please be aware that if the city was to experience a significant increase in the number of cases, future activities may need to be postponed or cancelled.
