School’s out for summer

PARENTS and carers are urged to sign their children up to a summer activity scheme.

With the school holiday rapidly approaching, Durham County Council is offering young people across the county, including in east Durham, a host of fun and exciting sports and activities to keep them entertained and active during the summer.

The council’s Schools Out! programme is now open to booking and includes fun-filled sessions for under 18s ranging from athletics to zumba.

Special offers include a week of swimming lessons for just £15 for children aged four and above.

The activity programme is being co-ordinated by Durham County Council and will be delivered by a network of local sports clubs, coaches and volunteers.
