Congleton children who are eligible for income related free school meals can take part in a whole host of exciting activities being offered locally by Congleton education Community Partnership (CeCP) and Congleton Children’s Centre.

The education partnership was successful in receiving grant funding as part of the government’s Holiday Activity Fund.
