Ribble Valley youngsters are invited to ‘knock boredom for six’ with Ribble Valley Borough Council’s 2019 summer activities booklet.

As Britain basks in World Cup Cricket glory, youngsters are invited to step up to the crease with six weeks of fun-filled activities.

The 16-page booklet, produced in association with Roefield Leisure Centre, Clitheroe, features dozens of activities at venues throughout the borough, including archery, basketball, caving, canoeing, climbing, football, grass sledging, orienteering, tennis, raft-building, snorkelling and swimming.

Roefield Leisure Centre will host a Festival of Fitness and, as well as accepting childcare vouchers, is offering a range of discounts and special rates on presentation of the booklet.

Ribblesdale Pool next door will host £1 swimming sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 4 and 6pm on selected dates throughout the summer.

And for arty youngsters Clitheroe Castle will host craft sessions with a ‘knights and princesses’ theme in July and ‘pirates’ theme in August.

Ribble Valley Borough Council’s sports development officer, Peter Fletcher, said: “This summer has been a phenomenal one for sport, with World Cup cricket, netball and women’s football, and the Rugby World Cup still to come.

“This year's activities booklet features a bumper crop of things for young people to do – from caving and canoeing to rugby and raft-building, there’s no need for boredom in Ribble Valley during the summer holidays and never been a better time to get active.”

The booklet has been delivered to the borough’s 38 schools and is available from the Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices in Church Walk, Clitheroe; Ribblesdale Swimming Pool in Edisford Road, Clitheroe, or at ribblevalley.gov.uk/summer.
