Youngsters are being invited to get active and beat school holiday boredom.

Ribble Valley Borough Council has launched its 2015 summer activities booklet listing six weeks of sports, arts and crafts for youngsters.

The courses, offered in conjunction with Lancashire County Council, the Grand and the Ribble Valley Children’s Trust, will take place at village halls, primary schools, libraries, the Ribble Valley Tennis Centre, Longridge Sports and Arts Centre, Platform Gallery, the Grand, Roefield Leisure Centre, Ribblesdale Pool and Clitheroe Castle Museum.

The 24-page booklet features dozens of activities on offer over the summer months, including archery, arts and crafts, body zorbing, climbing, dance and drama, football, netball, orienteering, singing, storytelling, skateboarding and swimming.

Ribble Valley Borough Council’s sports development officer, Peter Fletcher, said: “This year’s summer activities booklet is the most comprehensive yet, featuring a bumper crop of activities for young people.

“From body zorbing to zumba, there’s no need for boredom during the summer months, and with Tour of Britain fever wheeling in towards the end of August there’s never been a better time to get out and get active.

“We are grateful to the fantastic venues and dedicated volunteers who have joined forces to make these activities possible.”

The booklet is available from Ribble Valley Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, Ribblesdale Swimming Pool in Edisford Road, Clitheroe, and local libraries.
