Easter Holiday Play Sessions

The Easter holiday play sessions    11th April 2019 - 18th April 2019

After the huge popularity of last summer’s sessions we have decided to change our booking procedures for the Easter holidays. For the Jill Foster Dance and the Special Ops Laser Tag sessions you will need to register your interest in the sessions you want your child to attend by Friday 29th March. We will then hold a ballot to allocate the available places and make sure as many people as possible get a place. As always, our sessions are FREE OF CHARGE and are open to anyone resident in Walton Parish (Walton Grange, Walton Park, Caldecotte, Browns Wood, Old Farm Park, Wavendon Gate and Walnut Tree). To register your child / children on an event please email office@waltoncommunitycouncil.gov.uk or call 07726 591029.

Tuesday 16th April – Caldecotte Xperience

2 sessions, 2 very different experiences, as we head for the Caldecotte Xperience. In the morning you can try 3 different activities, getting a chance to do all of them, whilst in the afternoon we strike out on the open water with sessions of either canoeing or rafted canoeing. Each 2-hour session costs £5 and places are very limited and first come first served, so get your booking in early.

10am – 12noon – Archery, Caving and Zorbing.

Archery - Shoot for gold on this exciting and different activity. The safe, dedicated archery range includes a number of different target faces and games ideas with targets positioned up to 10m from the line. A great activity for improving dexterity, precision and hand to eye co-ordination.

Caving - The amazing underground cave network has tunnels and caverns of all shapes and sizes. Crawl on your knees or get down on your belly. Communication skills are really tested and challenged here, and participants need to listen, follow instructions carefully and work as a team to complete the tasks. Areas of total darkness add to the challenge.

Zorbing - Amazing fun inside an inflated ball on the purpose designed shallow zorbing pool. Have a great time floating around or running on the surface of the water.

These sessions take place at the George Amey Centre, Simpson, MK6 3AG.

2pm – 4pm – Canoeing or Rafted Canoeing

Canoeing – A great activity for all ability levels. Participants split into pairs and learn the basic paddling strokes which will enable each team to learn the skills essential to navigate around the lake. Team work is essential to get to a target destination unless you want to go around in circles!

Rafted Canoeing - This involves lashing two canoes together with ropes to make catamarans, holding 8-10 people. Using learned paddling skills groups travel around the lake taking part in games both on and off the water – moving from canoe to canoe, trying to stay dry - teamwork is essential.

For these sessions meet at the lakeside next to the Caldecotte pub.

To book a place for these sessions email office@waltoncommunitycouncil.gov.uk or call 01908 694758. Payment can be made by cash, card or bank transfer.
