Keeping youngsters busy around Great Yarmouth this summer

YOUNGSTERS around Great Yarmouth have the chance to try out new things while banishing boredom by joining a fun-packed activity club over the summer term and holidays.

Dance, basketball, football and kite sports are all on offer, along with life saving, surf rescue, beach volleyball, table tennis and pool.

Organised by NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, the activities take place at a variety of locations, including Bradwell, Martham, Hopton, Gorleston and Yarmouth for a range of prices.

Marten Payne, lead physical activity coordinator for children and young people with NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, said: “The sessions we organised last year were a fantastic success, with hundreds of children and young people taking part. We hope to attract even more participants this time around and would encourage anyone who wants to get more active or try their hand at something new to come along and join us.

“We want to make sure our young people are given lots of new opportunities to help them stay active and clock up 60 minutes of activity each day, so have made sure there is a good variety available which offers something for everyone. We’re really looking forward to welcoming children and young people from across the Great Yarmouth area to the sessions, which take place both in the summer term and during the holidays.”

Among activities are a surf rescue club at Gorleston Beach, street dance at Lynne Grove and beach sports at the Compass Centre in Belton. Pre-book to avoid disappointment by emailing martenpayne@nhs.net or ringing 07766 205746.
