Keeping children active this half term

Young people in West Oxfordshire will have the chance to swim for just £1 as part of a line-up of half-term activities at local leisure centres.

The District Council’s leisure centres are running a range of activities during the holiday, starting from Monday 11 February, to help get kids active.

Under-16s can swim for just £1 during selected sessions at Carterton, Chipping Norton and Witney’s Windrush Leisure Centres.

In addition to the discounted swimming, various other sessions are available, including:

* ‘Active Zone’, a holiday playscheme for 5-11 year olds at The Windrush, offering activities such as roller-skating, games, bouncy castle and face-painting
* Crash courses in football and dance at Bartholomew Sports Centre, Eynsham
* Racquet sports for just £1 for any age, Monday-Friday, at Chipping Norton Leisure Centre

The activities have been organised by the Council’s leisure contractor, GLL, which manages leisure facilities in West Oxfordshire.
