Lichfield District Council is inviting children and young people to have a half term full of fun from 26 October to 3 November 2013.

There is so much to keep children and families busy and active across Lichfield District this autumn half term.

From taking part on a Halloween Puzzle Trail at Beacon Park or a Holiday Club at Burntwood Leisure Centre, through to a Badminton Coaching Course at King Edward VI Leisure Centre or a Junior Duathlon at Friary Grange Leisure Centre, there is a lot on offer this half term.

As well as coaching courses and activity days, the council is running its holiday offers, ‘Footy for a Fiver’ at its three leisure centres and ‘Rapid Round of Golf’ at Beacon Park, to encourage young people to get fit and active over the week-long holiday.

Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Communications and Tourism, said: “For a half term full of fun book onto our sport courses or activity days. We have a wide range of activities on offer for children and young people, including drama, table tennis, cycling, swimming and much more.”

Friary Grange Leisure Centre’s swimming pool is closed while the £500,000 makeover to the changing rooms, reception and refreshment area takes place. The rest of the leisure centre, including the sports hall, squash courts, synthetic pitch and Evolve Fitness suite, is still open.

“We hope everyone will continue to swim at Burntwood Leisure Centre while Friary Grange’s swimming pool is closed. From leisure and lane swimming, through to adults only and fun sessions for the family, Burntwood’s pool timetable offers something for all ages,” continued Val.
