Keeping Dalton children amused in holidays

YOUNGSTERS have been enjoying the warm weather and taking part in a range of free sports sessions.

Dalton’s neighbourhood policing team, in partnership with Dalton Town Council, put on a host of activities to help stave off summer boredom for children and keep them out of trouble.

The sessions, including badminton, football and athletics, have taken place all week at Dowdales School, with up to 40 children aged between seven to 13 taking part.

This year’s event has taken on an Olympic theme, with the children split into four ‘nations’: Great Britain, Australia, China and Germany, with gold, silver and bronze points awarded at the end of each event.

At the end of the week, certificates will be handed out to the winning team.

Community coach Gregg Metcalf said: “The children have been really enjoying it. We have been using the sports hall for some activities and then the sports field for things like the long jump and tennis.

“The children have been competing in activities and then awarded gold, silver and bronze points.

“The children have been really enthusiastic and have enjoyed the Olympic theme.”
