From sucker archery and boxing, to disc golf and football, there are lots of free sessions available for young people to try this autumn half term.

Getin2it for young people, delivered by Lichfield District Council, is running a series of free Space activities this half term holiday, thanks to funding from the Staffordshire Police & Fire Commissioner.

The sessions are aimed at 8 to 17 year olds and will be held across the district at Burntwood Leisure Centre’s synthetic pitch and various parks in Lichfield and Burntwood, including Beacon Park, Shortbutts Park, Chase Terrace Park and Redwood Park. 

Free activities on offer include: sucker archery, outdoor fitness, foot golf, disc golf, multi sports, boxing and Just Play football.

Councillor Richard Cox, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Parks & Waste, said:

“I am thrilled we’ve been able to provide all these Getin2it sessions as part of the Space programme.

“They offer great opportunities for young people to burn off some energy and socialise in a covid-safe environment.

“The sessions are outdoors to allow for social distancing and all the equipment will be cleaned before and after use.

“On top of a drink, we’re asking participants to bring hand gel with them so they can sanitise their hands after using equipment.”

The half term programme has a mixture of turn up and pre-book sessions. All participants need to complete a Space declaration form and Getin2it consent form before attending any of the activities.
