Life connections trustees in Leeds have decided that after this summer holiday, the St Peters' holiday play scheme would be closed. Our son has been going to the holiday play scheme for over 4 years now and he absolutely loves it. He has learnt so much, developed remarkably, built friendships and relationships that have had a positive impact on him and he is so comfortable with the staff. We have also been looking forward to our other children attending, when they start primary school next year. I have recommended the holiday play scheme to many of my friends who have brought their children; they have not had one bad word to say about it as their children love it too.

The staff are very competent, we absolutely trust them with our son and have peace of mind when he is there because we know that he would be well taken care of. They keep us up to date about the activities that take place, as well as what the children were up to during the day.

I have consulted with some of the families affected by the decision to close the holiday play scheme and many parents are struggling with what to do with their children during the school holidays. There are no local holiday schemes in our area as a result; we are very stuck for what to do. My husband and I both work full time because we have to. It is decisions like this that make it very difficult for working parents and sometimes makes me think and feel that working parents are at a disadvantage, which is not very encouraging.

We want the trustees to deeply consider the sour impact their decision to close the holiday play scheme would have on families in the community. So please sign this petition so that they do not close the holiday play scheme and it can continue to run even after this summer holiday. Let us do it for our children, for families and for our community!
