Whitsun half term fun
Tuesday 31 May to Friday 3 June
Lichfield District Council is reminding parents that places are being snapped up fast for its half term coaching courses and activities.
Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, said: “We’ve got plenty to keep children and young people active and entertained at our leisure centres this Whitsun half term. The courses book up quickly, so make sure you secure your child’s place by calling your leisure centre of choice as soon as you can.”
Burntwood Leisure Centre is running its Playscheme, which is set to keep children, aged from 5 to 11, busy with arts and crafts, games, swimming and much more.
Taking place from Tuesday 31 May to Friday 3 June 2011, it is a fantastic way for children to have fun, under the watchful eyes of qualified play leaders. The Playscheme costs £15 for a 9am to 4pm day or £20 for an 8.30am to 5.30pm day.
On top of this, the leisure centre is also running a Rookie Lifeguard course to teach 8 to 12 year-old swimming and life saving skills, and a Swimming Crash Course for 4 to 6 year olds to gain confidence in the water.
