Leisure provider offers lots of activities for kids this summer
Parents faced with the prospect of having to keep their kids entertained during the summer holidays have been thrown a lifeline.
Staff at GLL Better, which manages West Oxfordshire District Council’s leisure facilities, are offering a wide range of activities for youngsters of all ages to keep them entertained.
It has introduced a summer programme which promises to introduce kids to a new sport while making friends and having fun.
Rod Noble, Community Sports Manager, said: “Keeping the kids entertained during the long summer holidays can be a challenge whilst prising them away from their screens may seem impossible.
“We’ve worked hard to develop a really exciting range of summer holiday activities for all the family that will tempt them off the sofa and ensure they’ll keep active and have great fun too.
“From football to swimming, tennis to holiday club there really is something for everyone. And, with some activities costing as little as £1, there really is no excuse not to take part.”
Cllr Jeanette Baker, Cabinet Member for Communities, Leisure and Tourism, added: “There is so much for young people to enjoy at our leisure centres and as well as getting them out of the house, it contributes to their health and wellbeing.
“With prices as little as £I, there is no reason for parents not to sign their children up so they can enjoy the benefits while being assured they are in a safe, supportive environment.”
