YOUNGSTERS in Ribble Valley can enjoy a half-term sports bonanza at the Edisford Sports Complex in Clitheroe.

Football, netball, multi-sports and swimming are up for grabs for boys and girls aged eight to 11.

The sessions start at 10 a.m., with football or netball, followed by multi-sports at 1 p.m. and swimming at 3 p.m.

Ribble Valley Borough Council’s leisure and sports development manager, Colin Winterbottom, said: “This scheme is a fabulous opportunity for local youngsters to participate in sporting activities during half-term at a reasonable price, and we look forward to welcoming them at the Edisford Sports Complex.”

The sessions cost £4 each, £7.50 for a full day, or £30 for the week.

Further information is available from Ribblesdale Pool on 01200 424825 and booking is recommended.

Also for half-term week (February 21st to 25th), Clitheroe’s Roefield Leisure Centre is once again running its popular Playscheme.

The fun-packed scheme has a varied programme of activities to keep the kids entertained, all taking place in a safe and fully supervised environment with two play leaders guiding the activities.

Children aged from eight to 13 can take part in activities such as climbing, swimming, football, outdoor activities, junior kick boxing, street dance and many more sports and games.

New for this Playscheme is Dance Mat games, which are great fun.

Children taking part can bring their own packed lunch or enjoy the centre’s Subway lunch for £3.

The Playscheme runs daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or extended hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., tailored to suit working parents.

Places are strictly limited and should be booked by calling at the Roefield centre in Edisford Road or phoning 01200 442188.
