24/03/17: Activity sessions to help children stay active this Easter Half Term

24 March 2017

Youngsters in Breckland are being encouraged to make the most of a programme of activities taking place across the district during the Easter Half Term.

Breckland Council's Rural Sports Programme will give 5-11 year olds a chance to take part in a range of sports and games during the school holidays, including dodgeball, kwik [sic] cricket, rounders and Danish longball. The programme will also feature traditional playground games, including duck, duck, goose, British bulldog, parachutes and sleeping lions.

Cllr Paul Claussen, Breckland's Executive Member for Place, said: "These sports and games sessions have taken place at Easter and over the summer for a number of years and are always very popular with local youngsters. The programme gives the children a chance to socialise with their friends - or to make new ones - while remaining active throughout the school break."

The sessions, which will be delivered by Aspire PE, will run Monday-Friday between 3 and 13 April inclusive. They will be held in Mundford, Foulden, Weeting, Watton, Swanton Morley, Necton, Attleborough, Great Hockham, Lyng and Bawdeswell (venue details below).

Each session (one each morning and one each afternoon) will be two hours long and costs £3 per child. Advance booking is not required. Children who attend five or more sessions will be eligible for a free t-shirt.
