Cherwell District Council’s popular Activity Hubs are all set to go with spaces on the programme becoming limited.

The activity hubs provide a healthy blend of sports, arts, crafts and games to keep young people happy and healthy during the Easter break. There are still a number of limited places available for booking over the telephone for the sessions, which run during the weeks beginning Monday, April 10 and Tuesday, April 18.

In addition to its core activities, such as football the programme also includes guest activities such as dodgeball, dance, badminton and table tennis for added variety.

Sharon Bolton, Cherwell’s leisure facilities and projects manager, said: “Lots of hard work has gone into preparing a fun and varied Easter hubs programme, and we’re looking forward to another high turnout.

“I would encourage anyone who is looking to keep their children entertained and active while they’re off school to book them onto the hubs.

“Sport and fitness are a big element of the hubs, but it’s not just about getting active, as there will be arts and crafts, providing a great chance to get creative and not forgetting the opportunity to meet and make new friends too.”

Sessions run on weekdays, excluding the two bank holidays on Friday, April 14 and Monday, April 17. They are open to boys and girls aged five to 15 years old and are split into two age groups.

All staff are DBS checked (formerly CRB). Lunch breaks are supervised but not catered.

Full day sessions, from 8.45am to 5pm, cost £18.95 per session while the shorter session from 8.45am to 3pm costs £14.95. Places are limited and must be booked in advance on a first-come-first-served basis.
