Fun and affordable activities for children this summer

DDC Media Release:

Action-packed but affordable activities for children will be taking place at Daventry Leisure Centre every Wednesday throughout the school summer holidays.

Organised by Everyone Active in partnership with Daventry District Council, the Wicked Wednesday sessions feature pool inflatables sessions as well as bouncy castles in the main hall, at a cost of £2 per person, per session.

The pool inflatables sessions are aimed at competent swimmers aged 8 and above and take place on Wednesdays 31 July, 14 August and 28 August. There are two sessions on each of the days running from 12.30-1.30pm, and from 2-3pm.

Non-swimmers and children aged 7 and below may join the session but must be supervised by an adult in the pool at a ratio of one adult to two children and are not allowed on the inflatables. Over 8s must be supervised by an adult at poolside.

The bouncy castle sessions are suitable for children aged 5 to 12 and take place on Wednesdays 7 and 21 August, with sessions from 10.30am to midday and from 12.15pm to 1.45pm. Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Councillor Alan Hills, Portfolio Holder for Community, Culture and Leisure at Daventry District Council, said: “Wicked Wednesdays are a great opportunity to get children out of the house over the holidays, and get them active. We are pleased to work with our partners at Everyone Active to put these sessions on and I hope families take full advantage of them.”

Sessions must be booked and paid for in advance by phoning Daventry Leisure Centre on 01327 871144
