The school holidays are a welcome break for the children, but can often be a headache for the parents that have to keep them amused and out of trouble for weeks on end!
If you’re sick and tired of hearing ‘I’m bored’ resounding through the house on the hour, every hour (and yes, I’m with you – I would love the opportunity to be bored but unfortunately, what with work, washing, cooking, cleaning and children, I simply don’t have the time) thebestof Haverhill can suggest a range of events and activities that don’t rely on good weather and won’t cost the earth.
School’s Out at Haverhill Leisure Centre offers holiday camps for children 8 years old or over. Choose from morning, afternoon or full day sessions, or if you have to work (or just need a bit of peace and quiet!), why not book them in for the whole week?
Activities include athletics, cycling, swimming, team sports, football, squash, basketball, laser blast, golf, dance mats, racket sports and much more.
Alternatively, if your little ‘treasure’ is under the age of 8, Haverhill Leisure Centre’s Kid City is just the ticket – holiday activities designed to amuse and entertain the younger children.
All activities are free once you have paid the Kid City entrance fee.
Again at Haverhill Leisure Centre, children aged between 8 and 14 have the opportunity to meet British cycling coach, John Stockwell and take part in a Cycling Session filled with team pursuits and fun obstacle courses this coming Wednesday 11th April.
£7.50 per session; bikes and helmets are provided. Don’t forget to bring along plenty of food and drink to refuel as it promises to be an exhilarating activity!
The Methodist Church in Wickhambrook has organised a Messy Church Session on Saturday 14th April, which has been designed with families in mind.
Enjoy messy crafts, fun, singing and refreshments.
