…….for little people with lots of energy
Family Fun sessions and holiday clubs will be happening throughout this week with some costing a fortune and some not. Here, below, I’ve found some real gems which the girls will enjoy this half term.
Trawling through the plethora of magazines and pamphlets is a real chore so I’ve made things easy with a few suggestions of places I will be exploring during the rest of the week.
Tomorrow Wednesday and it’s ‘Kids Fun Day’ at the Equestrian Centre Aintree, for some horsey nonsense that’s free 10am-
Then it’s climbing at Awesome Walls, Little Angels Kids Club with two hours rock climbing with an experienced instructor teaching all aspects of climbing from knots to technique and lead climb- St Albans Church, Athol Street,L5 9TN http://www.awesomewalls.co.uk or try around the corner for some clever bouldering experience at the new centre.
Both these venues have cheap eats and drinks that will break up the morning and give you a chance to replenish ready for the rest of the day ahead.
Thursday morning gives you free Family Nordic Walking experience at 11am, the National Wildflower Centre age 10+ and after dinner at the Cornflower Cafe you can continue with free Archery lessons till 3pm with the Bridgefield Archers providing professional advice and instruction.
This week is ‘Go Canoeing Week’ so you can have your fill of water-sports at the Albert Dock with Canoe England’s annual festival of paddling fun at the Water-Sports Centre till Sunday 1st June.
Me, well I’ll be trail blazing at Martin Mere enjoying a canoe safari around the lakes, water reeds, marsh and abundant wildlife in this new adventure programme set on the banks of the Mersey estuary.
Still with the Mersey estuary, a trip to New Brighton is always on the list, with the beach exploration and new shopping centre catering for all the family needs. Try the new restaurants around the marine, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the range of foods on offer, that’s if you can get a table.
These events above may be for ‘little people’ but there is nothing at all stopping adults getting involved in all the centres mentioned; climbing, canoeing, archery, Nordic Walking and having a brilliant day out ‘over the water’. However, Beechleys Stables or Croxteth Park Riding Centre might be more appropriate for the enthusiastic mature rider.
Remember, we are still in the decade of ‘Wellbeing’ and every little sporting adventure goes along way in helping you become a better, fitter and more able person in life.
