Kids have a busy summer schedule ahead of them thanks to a host of activities taking place as part of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s Summer Activity Programme for Young People.

If you are already starting to think about you can do to keep your little ones busy during the school holidays, there is sure to be something for them to enjoy in the local area.

Courses in climbing and multi sports commence the first week in July with many more to follow later in July and August including Athletics, Badminton, Dance, Netball, Tennis and Squash.
