October Holiday Activity Programme at Home

OCTOBER HOLIDAY ACTIVITY PROGRAMME
AT HOME 2020


Half-Term Holiday
Monday 19th - Friday 23rd October 2020

Have fun with the family this half term and enjoy taking part in the activities and daily challenges.

Due to COVID-19 our October Holiday Activity Programme will look different for October 2020, it will be replaced with an on-line programme; Charnwoods Healthy at Home Programme.

We have put together some exciting activities and ideas with some of your favourite providers so that you can still take part and enjoy in the comfort of your own home, garden or local area.


MONDAY 19th OCTOBER 2020

ORIENTEERING

On your way out for a family walk? Challenge yourself to orienteering, all you need to do is download the FREE maps either on your phone or print out. The Active Charnwood team went down to the Outwoods last week…we might need a little more practice!
