Easter holidays packed full of fun

An action-packed line-up of fun sporting activities has been organised to encourage young people in West Oxfordshire to spend their Easter holidays getting active.

A variety of workshops will take place at leisure centres and venues across the District as part of an Easter Activities programme organised by West Oxfordshire District Council, in conjunction with its leisure partner Wycombe Leisure Ltd.

Activities take place from March 31st to April 13th and range from mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing and fencing to football, golf, tennis, cricket and swimming. New activities for this year include the martial arts Tai Chi and Kung Fu.

Workshops have been designed with young people in mind and most are open to all abilities, from beginners to those with some experience.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: "The Easter Activities programme has been very popular in the past and this year we have even more activities on offer.
"We hope these will appeal to young people across the District and that the opportunity will be taken to use the school holiday to get active and try a new activity."

Details of courses and how to book are contained in an Easter Activities booklet, available online at www.westoxon.gov.uk/leisure/holidayprog.cfm and from Council offices, one stop shop and visitor information centres, or by calling the Council's leisure and tourism team on 01993 861080.
