Saddle up for Summer Activities as Tour Fever StartsPublished Wednesday, 15 July 2015
As Tour fever wheels into Ribble Valley, local youngsters are invited to get on their bikes for a host of summer activities.
Ribble Valley Borough Council has launched its 2015 summer activities booklet listing six weeks of sports, arts and crafts for youngsters.
The courses, being offered in conjunction with Lancashire County Council, the Grand and the Ribble Valley Children’s Trust, will take place at venues throughout the borough, including village halls, primary schools, libraries, the Ribble Valley Tennis Centre, Longridge Sports and Arts Centre, Platform Gallery and Visitor Information Centre, 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 in Ribble Valley during the summer months, and with Tour fever expected to wheel into the borough 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 the Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices in Church Walk, Clitheroe; Ribblesdale Swimming Pool in Edisford Road, Clitheroe, and local libraries.
