Do something this Easter!

Thousands of pupils across Harrow are being urged to Do Something This Easter!, as a guide to holiday activities landed in schools this week.

From aqua discos to aerobics and playschemes to puppetry, Harrow Council has organised more than 60 activities to keep young people busy over the Easter break. The Do Something This Easter! guide will be handed out at schools in the run up to holiday, and will also be available from libraries across Harrow.

The borough’s leisure centres, libraries and arts centre will be opening their doors to 0-19 year olds during the two-week school break.

Hatch End Pool, Harrow Leisure Centre and Aspire Pool will host a range of free events including swimming lessons, water polo, kayaking and aqua aerobics.

Leisure centres will hold athletics and football training sessions, while Harrow Arts Centre will hold week-long workshops in puppetry and theatre.

Younger residents can get involved in story time sessions at 10 libraries across the borough, and kids camps and film screenings are open to children of all ages.

Most of the events are free but there is a small charge for some of the activities.

Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services at Harrow Council, Cllr Mitzi Green, said:

This guide is every young person’s passport to an active Easter in Harrow . Whether you’re sporty or arty, you’ll find something fun to keep you busy and get you out the house during the school break.

A lot of the sessions are being provided for free by the Council and our partners, so it’s a great way for young people to socialise, exercise or learn new skills.
