A summer of free fun activities for children has been organised by Daventry District Council and the town’s leisure centre.

The events run through the school summer holidays at Daventry Leisure Centre, the County Park.

Every Wednesday, noon to 3pm, from July 24 to August 28 the leisure centre will host Wicked Wednesdays, with weekly activities including bouncy castles, arts and crafts, wet ‘n’ wild fun in the pool, and a roller disco.

Every Monday, 10am to noon, from July 29 to August 19 children can go on a mini adventure at the Country Park.

Children can join in on a summer safari, take on the Wild West challenge, or become Daventry Discoverers.

For the under-fives there will be activities every Friday from 10am to 12pm at the Country Park including guided fun walks, arts and crafts, and treasure hunts. The Friday sessions run from July 26 to August 30.

DDC community, culture and leisure portfolio holder Cllr Alan Hills said: “Once again we have arranged for lots of activities for youngsters to help keep them entertained over the school summer holiday. This is a very comprehensive programme with something for everyone.

“The sessions are completely free and promise to be very popular so I would recommend that mums and dads remember to book their Wicked Wednesday event the week before it takes place to ensure their children don’t miss out on some fantastic activities.”

Also at Daventry Leisure Centre throughout the summer will be hosting various sports camps, including cricket, volleyball, badminton, tennis, athletics, football, trampolining, basketball, dance, rugby, and boxing.
