North Lincolnshire Council is launching brand new NL Active fitness activities in April for young people and is offering free taster sessions during the Easter holidays.

The weekly activities will take place at The Pods leisure centre in Scunthorpe.

The aim is to encourage young people and their families to become more active and enjoy healthier lifestyles.

Free taster sessions will be provided during the Easter break and after that, promotional prices will be available.

The activities include:

Children attending for the first time will need a parental consent form to be completed before attending. The form can be collected from The Pods reception before or on the day (in advance of the session starting).

Sandra Simmons, Head of Participation and Achievement, said:

“Keeping active and leading a healthy lifestyle is really important no matter what your age. Starting this off at a young age will help ensure this is maintained in later life.

“These new sessions for young people and their families will encourage them to get active in a fun way. We are holding a number of free taster sessions during the Easter holidays for families to try out the sessions. Make sure you book your place to avoid missing out.”
