Summer holiday fun 2014

Beacon Park Fun Day

Beacon Park Fun Day

Bug hunting, gymnastics, swimming and drama are just some of the highlights in Lichfield District Council’s Summer Holiday Fun programme.

Summer is on the way and Lichfield District Council has launched its programme of activities to keep children and teenagers entertained over the school break, from 21 July to 29 August.

From a holiday club and swimming lessons at Burntwood Leisure Centre, to roller skating sessions and tennis coaching at Friary Grange Leisure Centre, through to Beacon Park’s Fun Day and Teddy Bear Games, there is plenty to keep young people busy.

The council is also offering ‘Footy for a Fiver’ at its three leisure centres – Burntwood, Friary Grange and King Edward VI.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “Our Summer Holiday Fun programme offers children and young people a great range of activities in Lichfield and Burntwood.

“Places book up early, so we’re reminding families to make sure they take a look at the programme and book as soon as they can. We also offer early bird prices on a number of activities at Friary Grange Leisure Centre, which are available until 6 July, so it really does pay to book early.

“It’s easier to book this year, with each of our leisure centres and Beacon Park now able to take bookings for any of the activities on the programme.”

The council is sending out the Summer Holiday Fun programmes in local school bags, and the booklets are also available at Burntwood, Friary Grange and King Edward VI leisure centres and at Beacon Park.
