West Oxon children set to 'hit the bullseye'

Archery will be one of the activities included in this year's Easter Holiday Programme. Running from the 3rd to 13th April, the programme is for children aged 2 to 16 years.
Chris Johnson, Sports Development Officer said, "Archery is a new and unique addition to this year's Easter Programme. Participants will be able to receive quality tuition from qualified instructors and have lots of fun as well as learning how to hit the bullseye! Cogges Manor Farm and Museum provides a safe and
spectacular venue to stage this exciting activity. It is being run in partnership with Adventure Plus and Cogges Manor Farm Museum."

In addition to Archery there are other new exciting activities such as Gymnastics, an All Day Sports Camp and Talent Team Mountain Biking. Popular courses from previous years are also included. The Easter
Holiday Programme is provided by West Oxfordshire District Council, in partnership with Wycombe Leisure Ltd.

"We hope a lot of children will come along to improve their skills, have a go and have a great time", says
Chris Johnson. "It is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment as there are only a limited number of places for each activity."
