Sports centre manager, Trudy Sharman, said: “Our summer activities for children are always very popular.

“All the sessions are based around having fun, but they will also help youngsters potentially gain new skills and stay healthy throughout the long summer holidays.

“The sports centre is also open for casual use.”
