Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) Programme
LIVE BOOKINGS ARE OPEN for our December Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) programme!
Our programme has been expanded, enabling us to offer places to more children- at more locations! ‘HAF’ is the Holiday Activity & Food programme funded by the government.
The aim is to provide opportunities to be active, socialise and providing fun ways to learn about food education as well as a free meal at every session.
We are also very excited to announce our HAF teen programme! Offering a free meal each day, food education and a gym & swim pass! Magna Vitae’s next HAF programme dates are:
Friday 22nd (Skegness & Mablethorpe Only), Wednesday 27th (all locations), Thursday 28th (all locations), Friday 29th December 2023 (all locations) and Tuesday 2nd January 2024 (Louth only).
We will be running HAF programmes in Louth, Skegness and Mablethorpe.
There will be two programmes running at each site: Our ‘main’ HAF programme for children aged 5-13 years (school years: Reception–Year 9) & Our teen HAF programme is for young people aged 14–16 years (school years 10 & 11).
Parents should receive HAF voucher codes on or before this date. Each child that is eligible for HAF funding will receive 4 HAF voucher codes to use over the December school holidays.
Eligibility for HAF places can be found on Lincolnshire County Council’s website by clicking here.
Families who are eligible for HAF funding will be notified by their child’s school and receive an e-Voucher code (via the school). These codes will be provided with a website link to the booking system. The booking system will show all HAF programmes within Lincolnshire, so that families can see availability and choose where to book!
Nearer the time, please keep an eye out for the e-Voucher email from your child’s school. (If you believe you should receive a voucher and have not, please contact your child’s school first).

What to wear?
Please dress your child in comfortable, casual clothes suitable for active sessions, the weather, and that you don’t mind getting messy from any crafts or food. Your child will also need to bring a coat, and preferable be wearing trainers.
What does each day involve?
Every HAF session with Magna Vitae will involve active sessions, a free meal, food education and crafts. The sports or crafts will vary depending on the session and venue.
My child has a medical condition, allergy, medication?
If your child has a medical condition, allergy, takes any medication, or has an ECHP plan from school, please make us aware on the booking system and on any food order form (if allergy / food related).
The HAF team will review this information before the day your child attends, to make sure that we can provide the best experience for your child, and to make any relevant staff aware. Letting us know this information in advance can help us to make the club a better experience for your child.
