“It was important the activities appealed just as much to older children and teenagers as they did to young families and, who knows, we may have inspired some next generation athletes, artists or musicians.

“Big Summer would not have been possible without the support of our fantastic local partners who, despite not always having the Great British weather on their side, really got into the spirit and made it such a massive success.”
