Activities to keep youngsters occupied during the summer holidays are being held at Daventry Leisure Centre from next Wednesday, August 5.

A roller disco on August 5, water ‘zorbing’ on August 12, mad science workshops on August 19 and an end-of-summer party on August 26 are among the events which have been organised on Wednesdays throughout August.

The sessions all start at 12.30pm and 2pm and parents are welcome to join the roller disco and water zorbing for £1.

Daventry Country Park is also hosting a series of Monday mini-adventures.

Sessions run from 10.30am to midday and include outdoor wilderness skills sessions with Bear Wilderness on August 10 and 24, and the Adventure Trail on August 3 and 17.

Children must be supervised during these activities.

Cllr Alan Hills said: “This is another packed programme of activities for youngsters over the school summer holidays.

“From old favourites such as the water zorbing, to new additions like the wilderness skills sessions at the Country Park, I think there is something for everyone here.

“We know how difficult it can be for parents to keep children entertained during the holidays so we try to keep the activities affordable and I would encourage as many families as possible take advantage of these sessions and have a brilliant time.”

Booking on 01327 871100 is recommended for all sessions as spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. For more visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/leisure/summer.
