SPACE programme ensures kids get to explore fun activities
From sucker archery and boxing to disc golf and football, there is no shortage of free fun activities to keep young ones active and entertained this autumn half term school break. Getin2it for young people, delivered by Lichfield District Council, is running a series of free Space activities during the forthcoming half term holiday, which runs from October 26 to October 30. And it is no small thanks to funding provided by the Staffordshire Police & Fire Commissioner. The sessions, which are aimed at 8 to 17 year olds, will be held across the district on Burntwood Leisure Centre's synthetic pitch and at various parks in Lichfield and Burntwood, including Beacon Park, Shortbutts Park, Chase Terrace Park and Redwood Park. The fun and free activities on offer include sucker archery, outdoor fitness, foot golf, disc golf, multi sports, boxing and Just Play football.

Councillor Richard Cox, Lichfield District Council's Cabinet Member for Leisure, Parks & Waste, said: "I am thrilled we've been able to provide all these Getin2it sessions as part of the Space programme. They offer great opportunities for young people to burn off some energy and socialise in a Covid-safe environment. The sessions are outdoors to allow for social distancing and all the equipment will be cleaned before and after use. On top of a drink, we're asking participants to bring hand gel with them so they can sanitise their hands after using equipment."
