Early bird offers are available on half-term activities at leisure centres in Lichfield and Burntwood. Football, badminton, basketball, tennis and swimming are among the sessions on offer as part of Lichfield District Council’s Holiday Fun programme. Savings can be made on some activities if booked before October 11. Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet member for leisure, said: “With swimming, sports sessions, roller skating, park activities and more, there’s plenty for children and young people to do this autumn half term. “To avoid disappointment, we’re encouraging families to look at the full programme and book as soon as possible.” There are also activities in Beacon Park, including a £1 Halloween Trail from October 24 to November 1, and a bird feeder making session from 11am to 3pm at the park’s discovery hub. The full programme and booking details are available online.
