Monmouthshire’s leisure provider MonLife is gearing up for its annual Monmouthshire Games, with plenty on offer to keep children and young people active and entertained over half term. The week-long event kicks off from Monday 26th October and will be run across all four of the county’s leisure centres; Abergavenny, Caldicot, Chepstow and Monmouth.
The Monmouthshire Games are aimed at children between the ages of five and 11 and offers activities to suit a range of different interests and hobbies. The sessions run from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday. All activities will be delivered in accordance with National Governing Body guidelines for each sport and will be COVID-19 compliant.
This year’s Monmouthshire Games follow the successful delivery of the ‘Summer Activity Hubs’, which were developed with the help of services from sports development, the youth service and leisure. The hubs proved very popular with young people and were delivered to meet all the government guidelines to ensure children and staff were kept safe.
Since 2016, the Monmouthshire Games have encouraged thousands of children and young people to develop confidence, meet new friends and most importantly – have fun through sport. With the challenges brought on by the pandemic, it is also hoped that this year’s event will help to improve wellbeing and promote healthy bodies and minds.
Each site has 20 spaces available per day and parents are being encouraged to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Cabinet Member for Mon Life, Cllr Richard John said: “The health and wellbeing of our children has never been more important and I’m pleased we are able to deliver our ever popular Monmouthshire Games despite the challenging circumstances. The week hopes to give our young people the chance to get active while having fun – something that’s much needed as we head into the colder months. I look forward to hearing what all our young people got up to over half term.”
