Spring has sprung in Banbridge

Spring has sprung, the birds are singing and the flowers are beginning to bloom just in time for the council to announce details of an ‘egg-stra’ special activity programme for all the family during the Easter holiday period.

Organised in conjunction with the Active Communities Programme, Banbridge District Arts Committee and Banbridge District Sports Association, the programme has been developed to enable individuals from across the district to take part in a wide variety of recreational activities.

Running from Wednesday 8 to Friday, April 10, over 170 individuals will be able to take part in this year’s programme. Among the sports courses on offer are angling, multi sports (which may include archery, football, gaelic games, volleyball, and racquet sports) and hip hop dance.

Arts and crafts activities on offer include Easter Birdhouses, Bunny Jars, Easter Bonnets and Easter Trees, as well as a Flower Power and Busy Bee workshop.

Courses will be held in various council facilities throughout the district including Banbridge Leisure Centre, Dromore Community Centre and the Old Town Hall, Banbridge.

Programme guides are now available from most council facilities.

For further information including details on how to book or to receive a copy of the programme guide, contact the council’s Leisure and Development Department on 028 4066 0605 or visit our website at www.banbridge.gov.uk

The final date for booking a course or activity featured in the activity programme is Friday March 27.

Early booking is highly recommended for all courses and activities as spaces are strictly limited.
