Summer Activities 2022: What's Happening Near You

Last updated 12th July 2022 at 13:10

You can’t always count on the weather in Scotland to make every summer memorable. However, making friends, having fun and trying something new might just turn a rainy day around.

Although having a break from school, college or university can be relaxing, it can also leave us feeling a little bit isolated from our friends.

SAMH (5 Ways to Better Mental Health) says that connecting with friends or joining a local group or club to meet new people can help you feel happier and lift your mood.

So, to make sure you have a fun, well-deserved summer break, we’ve put together a list of what's happening in different local areas so you can find out what’s going on in your community.

Whether you’re into craft making, LEGO building competitions or hanging out at the local swimming pool, take a look and you might find something you fancy.
