Early bird bargain for half term hubs

Early birds will soon be able to score a deal on activities for their children as the countdown to the half term hubs begins.

Published: Monday, 30th September 2019

Cherwell District Council’s activity sessions for five to 15-year-olds run from Monday 28 October to Friday 1 November in Banbury and Bicester.

The hubs put fun and creativity on a level playing field with sports. Dance, games, arts and crafts are lined up alongside everything from tag rugby to hockey, basketball and kwik cricket. Parents can save 10 per cent if they reserve their children’s places between Tuesday 1 October and Sunday 6 October.

Cllr George Reynolds, Cherwell’s deputy leader, said: “One of our missions as a council is to encourage people of all ages to lead healthy and active lifestyles.

“Summer might be over, but our hubs programme proves that there are fun ways of staying active whatever the weather.

“These are accessibly priced sessions, but the opportunity to book places at a ten per cent discount makes it an even more attractive offer to parents in north Oxfordshire.”

Taking place at North Oxfordshire Academy in Banbury and Cooper School in Bicester, the hubs cost the equivalent of just £2.50 per hour.

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 8:5am to 5:00, cost £19.80; while the shorter session, 8:45am to 3:00pm, costs £15.60. To unlock the 10 per cent discount, use the code EARLYBIRD when booking on Eventbrite. Bookings open on Tuesday 1 October.
