Bletchley Leisure Centre had a huge increase of children in their holiday schemes this Easter.

The scheme, which is run by Milton Keynes Leisure, saw an 82 per cent rise of children attending their holiday schemes during the Easter fortnight, where classes grew from 11 per session to 20.

Children from across Milton Keynes spent their Easter holidays swimming, trampolining, playing water polo and many more activities that the centre had to offer. These activities are both just-for-fun and coached.

Milton Keynes Leisure moved its activities to Bletchley Leisure centre last year and have now been tried by 238 children since it began in summer 2013.

Sarah Davies, who is the centre manager, says the increase in the numbers of children taking part is due to the centre offering a wider range of activities.

She said: “We are delighted with such a huge increase.

“We are delighted with the growing popularity of the school holiday activities and as a charitable trust we are committed to providing the local community with activities they want and need to keep active.”

Hayley King, who is one of the centre’s holiday activity supervisors, found working on the holiday scheme “inspiring”. She said: “Being able to see different children learn all different types of sport and activities is very motivating.

“I can honestly say I love working at the holiday club, meeting new faces, you never know what to expect.”
