Leisure centre has a full Jubilee half-term children's programme

Tuesday, 29th May 2012.

Haverhill Leisure Centre will kick off half-term activities with a Queen’s Jubilee Open Day and a chance to try out activities for free on Saturday, June 2.

The open day, from 10am to 3pm, will give the children of the local community a chance to try out a number of activities free of charge including laser blast at 11am, raft-building at 1pm, and multi-sports from 11am to 3pm.

For under eights there will be a Disney Princess and Princes Movie Day on Monday and Tuesday, June 4 and 5, from 10am to 4pm when children can watch films dressed as Prince William or Princess Kate. The winners will sit on thrones at a Royal tea party on Friday, June 8.

On Thursday, June 7, there’s a chance for children to design Royal pictures and flags for a tea party in an art session from 11am to 12 noon.

Then on Friday, the half-term holiday culminates in a Royal tea party at Kid City from 2pm to 4pm where children can attend dressed in red, white and blue.

For children aged eight to 14 there’s a chance to try the centre's brand new activity of raft-building on Thursday, June 7, from 10am to 11am. Children will build a raft and then race it to see how well it floats.

Plus there’s swimming, team sports, football, basketball, laser blast, squash, and racket sports including tennis on offer at the centre’s popular holiday camps for children aged eight and over.

The holiday camps will take place every day from Wednesday, June 6 to Friday, June 8, from 9am to 5pm. Children can take part in the camps for a morning or afternoon, a whole day or even the three-day week.

There are lots of different activities to choose from each day and a range of indoor activities for adverse weather conditions.

Amelia Epton, Abbeycroft’s children and young people programme manager, said: “This half-term, to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, we are having an open day, Royal tea party, a chance to make Royal pictures and flags and dress up as Prince William and Princess Kate. It will be a lot of fun for children and adults alike.”

The holiday camps cost £5 for a morning or afternoon session. For the whole day it costs £9.99 per child and £29 per child for the three days. Parents need to provide lunch and swimwear. Parents can take advantage of an early drop-off at 8.30am for an extra £2.50 per child, booked in advance.

Bookings must be made in advance at the Leisure Centre or by calling 01440 702548 or book online at www.acleisure.com
