Easter activities and sports academy programmes 2015

Our Council will be working with a range of partners and local sports clubs to provide a variety of activities for children of all ages to take part in during the Easter holiday break. The Active Start and Active and Achieving sessions will take place throughout the region and will include something that will interest you.

Children playing tennis
The Council are providing young children with an opportunity to try a wide variety of activities. It is important that children are introduced to activity from a young age. Encouraging children to take part in sport whilst they are young is one of the best ways for them to become equipped with the physical ability and confidence to keep active throughout their lifetime.

The activities kick off on Tuesday 7 April until Friday 17 April to keep children active, healthy and creative. To make things easier for you, our activities have been split by area.

Please note some of the activities listed in the brochures require prior booking and payment.  Please see individual programmes for booking and pricing details.
