YOUNGSTERS have been kept busy with lots of different activities during the Easter holidays.

Bourne Leisure Centre, in Queen’s Road, Bourne, has organised Camp Energy for two weeks for children aged eight to 14.

Duty manager Michael Chester said it is on every day during the holidays except for weekends, Good Friday and Bank Holidays.

The event is a great opportunity for children to get together with their friends and make new ones, as well as enjoy a wide range of sports, games and even watch the occasional film.

Mr Chester said: “It costs £13 a day for the sessions, which include activities such as basketball, tennis, football, cricket, swimming and much more.”

Children made a beeline for Bourne Library for the Bees, Butterflies and Beetles event on Wednesday.

More than 340 children and parents went to learn about creepy crawlies and take part in craft activities.

Children were able to make bags, mobiles and scrapbooks to record the insects in their gardens at home.

There was also a bug trail around the library, where youngsters had to follow pictures of common garden bugs.

Lea Rickard, site co-ordinator at the library, said: “It was a great day and I think the children learned a lot. They all left with smiles on their faces.”
