A two-week programme packed with fun activities has been put together by Corby Council to keep children entertained during the schools’ Easter holidays.

From Tuesday, April 2, until Friday, April 12, there will be no shortage of things to do.

At the swimming pool there will be a range of activities, including Flip ‘n’ Fun and supervised diving sessions.

If children keep their receipt from the pool they can pop next door to The Core theatre to watch a movie for just £2.

Corby Splat Camp will be running at Lodge Park Sports Centre for children from six to 14 and activities will include arts and crafts, board games, football, archery, dodgeball and outdoor activities.

At the Recreation Ground in Gretton there will be tennis, basketball, hockey, athletics, handball and fencing sessions, costing £1.50. There is no need to book and children from six to nine can just turn up from 10am until 11am, with sessions for nine to 13-year-olds from 11am until midday.

For youngsters who love a casual kick about with their friends, the astro turf at West Glebe Pavilion will be available from 10am-4pm for £1.50 per person.

Corby Council’s lead member for community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “The council believes it is important for children to be active during the holidays and this is why we always organise a range of activities to keep them entertained.

“We hope all that join in have a great time and an Easter break to shout about when they get back to school.”
