A Summer of Sporting Activities in North Norfolk

Archery, street dance, multi-sports and football among a wide range of sports and activities on offer for youngsters this summer 

A huge range of children's activities will be on offer at North Norfolk District Council-managed community sports centres during the Summer school holidays.

The sessions will offer healthy and fun activities for youngsters aged between 4 and 12.

Cromer, North Walsham and Stalham sports centres have drawn up their diary of activities, which can be viewed on Facebook, via the North Norfolk District Council website and on leaflets being distributed to local schools.

Activities begin on July 24 and run through to September 1.

Costs range from £3.50 for shorter sessions to £10 for all day sessions. Many of the days feature early drop off and late pick up if parents need to work, meaning wrap around care is often available from 8am to 4.30pm.

North Norfolk District Council is also offering beach events at Cromer, Sea Palling and the Runtons, countryside events at Holt Country Park, Sadlers Wood and Pretty Corner Woods, and the fifth annual Fun Day Out at Pretty Corner Woods.

Cllr Maggie Prior, Cabinet Member for Leisure Health and Wellbeing, said: “Whether your child is a trampolining or football fan, or they want to try something new, it is well worth looking at the long list of activities being made available.

“We’re delighted to be able to offer our community these sessions, which will be run by qualified and dedicated staff, at really affordable prices.”

Tickets can be booked via www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/book or call the sports centres on: Cromer 01263 515669; North Walsham 01692 402293; Stalham 01692 580864.
