Sports, arts and play are just days away

With the first half term holiday of 2019 just days away, parents are being invited to book places on an exciting holiday activity programme.

Published: Monday, 11th February 2019

Cherwell District Council’s activity hubs centre on multisports, arts, and crafts sessions. They will run during the week beginning Monday, 18 February in Banbury and Bicester.

There will be special guest activities such as tennis, dance and trampoline, coached by local sports clubs. Parents can reserve places online using the Eventbrite service any time before 5pm on the day before they want their children to attend.

Cllr George Reynolds, Cherwell’s deputy leader, said: “Establishing healthy habits early in life can have a big impact on your fitness as you grow up. Our hubs programme offers young people a great way to discover new activities and make connections with local sports clubs.

“Year on year, the hubs have proved a hit with local children and their parents. With this exciting programme about to kick off, I encourage people to make their bookings and secure a few days of happy and healthy fun for their children.”

The hubs are running at North Oxfordshire Academy in Banbury and Cooper School Sport Facility in Bicester.

All the staff leading the sessions have passed Disclosure and Barring Service checks. The activities are open to children aged five to 15 years old and are split into two age groups, five to seven-year-olds and over-eights.

Full day sessions, from 8:45am to 5:00pm, cost £19.40 while the shorter session, 8.45am to 3pm, costs £15.30.
