THERE’S an action-packed line-up of events for children in Hartlepool to look forward to over the Easter holidays.

Archery, forest activities and a trip to Preston Park and Museum are just some of the sessions being organised by the West View Project, a not-for-profit organisation in Miers Avenue which runs activities for young people in the town.

The Project’s Infant and Junior Youth Clubs will be closed for the Easter holidays, but in their place is the Easter Playscheme for children aged from five to 11-years-old.

Each day-long session will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm and costs £1 per child per day.

Children will need to bring a packed lunch.

The full programme is:

•Monday, March 30 – Arts and crafts.

•Tuesday, March 31 – Forest activities including cooking in front of an open fire, den-building and team games. Kids are advised to bring old clothes, a raincoat and wellies.

•Wednesday, April 1 – Cinema outing.

•Tuesday, April 7 – Fun at Wynyard Woodland Adventure Park, where children should bring old clothes, a raincoat and wellies.

•Wednesday, April 8 – Trip to Preston Park and Museum for which youngsters should bring a raincoat and sensible old shoes.

•Thursday, April 9 – Archery.

Rebecca Ferguson, West View Project’s senior participation worker, said: “Our Easter Playscheme is always very popular as it offers children a wide range of exciting and different experiences.

“It’s a chance for the youngsters to have fun and make new friends and mums and dads have the reassurance that their children are being well looked after in a safe environment.”

Places on the trips must be booked in advance by contacting the West View Project on (01429) 272699 before the end of Friday, March. 20
