Are you ready for the summer holidays?

As we hit the peak of the summer vibes of 2018, it's sometimes hard to decide what to do simply because you can't find the right thing to do. That's why we've done all the hard work to bring everything to you!

We've put together our Active Summer Holidays Programme, to get as many people as possible doing as many activities to make the most of what seems to be a blistering summer so far. Whether you're already active or not, there are a number of activities which can be done without real experience right across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.

Doing just 10 minutes a day has huge benefits for you! Current UK guidelines advise adults to accumulate 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) per week and children 60 minutes per day.

Which is why we want to make staying fit and healthy fun to try at least one activity from lots of fantastic campaigns and programmes taking place over the coming months, aiming to inspire you into active action!

Localities have launched special holiday campaigns, whether it be a trip to Bradgate Park for a nice brisk walk in Charnwood, an adventurous dig for dinosaurs in Hinckley & Bosworth, Football holiday camps at Melton Sports Village with Steve Walsh and Muzzy Izzet, or even some time to yourself at the fishing lake at the Hermitage Recreational Ground… there's plenty of get yourself stuck into!

No matter what sort of sport or activity you're into, there is something for everyone through local districts. For more information on the Active Summer and to find out how you can get involved in specially set up activities that will be available from now until September.
