WV Active is putting on a jam packed schedule of activities for children of all ages this half term.

The 3 City of Wolverhampton Council run leisure centres, WV Active Aldersley, WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams and WV Active Central, will be holding a variety of sessions to suit children and young people aged from 3 to 16 from Bank Holiday Monday 30 May to Friday 3 June, 2016.

As well as popular sports such as football, tennis, netball and hockey, WV Active Aldersley will be offering archery, ultimate frisbee and fencing sessions for those who want to try something a little different.

Cycling courses will take place at WV Active Aldersley throughout the half term with cycling basics and balance lessons for younger children and safety courses for older children who are ready to start cycling on roads.

Aldersley also offers an alternative to sports, with a roller disco, giant fun games and art and craft activities throughout the week.

WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams will be holding crash course swimming lessons, and for those who haven't had lessons before WV Active Central is staging free swimming lesson tasters for children aged 3 to 5.

And for something that involves the whole family, WV Active Central will be hosting fun float sessions in the swimming pool every afternoon throughout the week.

Councillor Steve Evans, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Environment, said: "Our leisure centres are offering a fantastic array of activities to keep young visitors entertained and active during the half term holidays, whatever the weather."
