Mole Valley District Council is once again offering a wide range of free outdoor activities for school-aged children this holiday time. For three days in October, spread across Ashtead, Dorking and Leatherhead, children can try a new sport, or practice a well-loved one.
The free holiday activities are available on the 25th, 27th and 29th October from 10am – 2pm 2021. More details are at www.molevalley.gov.uk/holidayactivities . The sessions are all mixed and whilst many of the activities are available to all (5-12yrs), some will be age-specific.
The activities begin in Leatherhead on Monday 25th October, where the Kingston Road Rec will be hosting Orienteering, Tag Rugby, Dodgeball, Football and Cricket. Meadowbank, Dorking will also host all those sports as well as angling on the Wednesday 27th. Friday 29th will see all the sports excluding angling taking place at Ashtead Rec.
Councillor David Draper, MVDC’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: “After the success of the summer holiday activities, which attracted over 1800 visits to our fun and active sessions, we are delighted to host a programme of activities again this October half term. Young people’s physical and mental health is so important, especially as we head into the winter months. We hope these sessions might inspire young people to keep going with a new sport and they will be a great way to make new friends too. Visit our website for more information.”
