LOTS of fun activities are on offer for children in East Dorset this summer.

The Christchurch and East Dorset Partnership has published a leaflet, right, listing a whole host of holiday activities.

Summer Blast 2014 gives a colourful and complete listing for all ages at a variety of venues throughout the area.

For youngsters who are into sport and adventure, there is a complete list of events, swimming timetables and courses at QE Leisure Centre, Lifestyle at Verwood Hub, Go-Ape, Two Rivers Meet Leisure Centre, Potterne Park, Wimborne Minster Tennis Club, Ferndown Leisure Centre and Activate Coast and Countryside.

Nature lovers can find out about everything going on at Moors Valley Country Park, Christchurch Countryside Services and Edmondsham Forest School as well as a range of Nuts About Nature sessions at countryside sites throughout the area.

Lovers of arts, crafts and historical activities will be interested in finding out about events at Walford Mill Crafts, Highcliffe Castle and Priest’s House Museum.

For those wishing to explore our attractions, or find out more about Moors Valley Railway and Wimborne Model Town, there is a listing of additional activities taking place there over the summer holidays, as well as town events promoted by Wimborne BID.

For children with special needs, Artz Plus and Sportz Plus activities taking place in Christchurch and East Dorset are listed. These are specific fun art, craft, sport and adventure activities.

There are signposts to art weeks taking place at four community centres for children living near Leigh Park, Wimborne, Three Legged Cross and Heatherlands.

This has been supported by the popular Sting in the Tale Festival of stories which takes places in unique venues in both East Dorset and Christchurch – all children’s storytelling events can be found here.
