Keep kids entertained in the holiday

The October holidays will give children of all ages a chance to continue their participation in sport.

Following the success of the summer Stewartry holiday programme, Dumfries and Galloway Council is providing a variety of sessions in the school half-term break.

Under the Active Start banner for preschool children, there will be soft play sessions in Castle Douglas Town Hall, Olympi Kidz sessions in your local sports centre and fun sessions at Castle Douglas pool.

For the Active and Achieving primary children, there will be fun multi-sport sessions every Tuesday and Thursday at the sports centres, a Halloween pool party at Castle Douglas pool and a trip to Carlisle bowling alley to finish the holiday off.

To book your child’s place or for more information, call Dumfries and Galloway Council Leisure and Sport on 01556 503806, visit www.dumgal.gov.uk/sportyacademy or look out for the Stewartry sports academy Active Start and Active and Achieving October flyer.
