Activ8 holiday clubs at farm shop

A holiday club provider has linked up with a local farm shop to provide children with fun outdoor & sporty holiday clubs this summer.

They kick off with a taster day in the May half term week on Friday 3rd June (9-3pm), then the summer holiday dates are always on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays: 27th, 28th & 29th July (week 1); 10th, 11th & 12th August (week 2) & 24th, 25th & 26th August (week 3). Each week culminates with a presentation of awards & goodies to all the children.

These days are perfect for primary school children aged 4-12, boys & girls giving them a chance to try out a wide range of multi-sports including football, hockey, tennis, basketball, parachute games & dodgeball.

The children get the chance to play in Pigg’s Playbarn at the beginning & end of each day. There will be some art & craft activities each day in the Pigg’s Playbarn party rooms.

Dan Wilson, Director of Activ8 began “It’s a great venue for children’s activities with the field space, the Skylark Nature Trail & Pigg’s Playbarn. No doubt, parents will appreciate the easy access & parking, the Creamery Café & the farm shop itself.”

Lady Hamilton, Marketing Manager of Apley Farm Shop added “We have a lot of customers with young children, looking for fun things to do in the school holidays & Activ8 really fill that need.”

Activ8 set up in Telford as an after school & holiday club provider in September 2014, when Apley Farm Shop provided free apples to each participating child.

Lord Hamilton continued “We are delighted to continue our links with Activ8 in this way as getting children out & about, active & sporty is so important for their well-being – improving concentration, co-ordination & social skills, as well as building confidence & combatting obesity.“

Full day (9-3pm) sessions cost £15, half day (9-12noon) sessions cost £8.

Children with Telford Loyalty Card (TLCs) get a 20% discount.

Apley Farm Shop is on the A442 between Telford & Bridgnorth, near the Hundred House in Norton.
