GET IN! SUMMER FUN WITH CHELMSFORD CITY COUNCIL

4/7/18 About 1 minute
The school summer holidays will soon be here and parents will be looking for childcare, or something fun for their children to do over the long summer break. Help is at hand from Chelmsford City Council, which has a range of Get In! Skills Clinic and Active Fun sessions that will ensure there's never a dull moment, and that children will have fun, be active and learn new skills.

Councillor Julia Jeapes, Cabinet Member for Leisure is proud of Chelmsford City Council's commitment to leisure and their support to keeping the community fit and active. She says: "Once again our leisure team has devised some really interesting and fun-packed sessions for youngsters to keep them fit and active over the long summer holidays. Our Get In! activities are also ideal for busy working parents looking for fun and friendly childcare options."

Get In! Skills Clinics are intensive, short courses designed to give children a solid foundation in a chosen sport at a choice of locations in and around the city: Riverside Ice & Leisure Centre, Dovedale Sports Centre, Chelmsford Sports & Athletics Centre and South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre. Between the hours of 9am and 5pm, parents can leave their children in the care of friendly, qualified staff and coaches for a jam-packed half or full day of indoor and outdoor activities from Monday 23 July - Monday 3 September. Activities are dependent upon venue but include swimming, archery, athletics, cycling, football, horse riding, and trampolining to name but a few. Children will have the opportunity to make new friends, have fun, as well as learning some life-long sporting skills. There's also an option for children to arrive early (8am) or be picked up late (6pm). The Get In! Skills Clinics are available for children aged between 3 and 15 (depending on the activity). Early-bird discounts are available and are staggered with the weeks of the summer holiday, with the first early-bird ending on 10 July, for the weeks commencing 23 and 30 July. Half-day clinics are £15 (£12.50 early-bird) and £30 (£25 early-bird) for whole-day clinics. Early To discover more, visit http://www.chelmsford.gov.uk/getin or call 01245 606707.
