Family boxercise and soft archery for beginners is on offer for free in Lichfield District this half term.

Free boxercise taster sessions are running at Beacon Park on Saturday 29 May and on Saturday 5 June at 11am and 1pm. The sessions are aimed at giving families the opportunity to take part in something together, encouraging all ages and abilities to give boxercise a go. There is no need to book – just turn up and take part.

Free soft archery is also on offer for beginners at Chase Terrace Park on Wednesday 2 June and at Beacon Park on Friday 4 June at 1pm and 2.15pm. The sessions are for young people aged between 7 and 14 and need to be pre-booked online.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member responsible for Leisure & Parks, said:

“It is great to see the chance for people to have a go at something new in Burntwood and Lichfield this half-term. With our fantastic parks offering an outdoor Covid-secure space, this is a great way to have some fun.    

“There is lots more on offer from our getin2it activities, so I would encourage everyone to go online and see what's available throughout the year."

All the usual Covid-secure safety measures will be in place.

Check out the half term programme and book soft archery.
