A Leeds activity centre is proving that it’s not all plain sailing this Easter.
Leeds Sailing and Activity Centre, at Yeadon Tarn, north west of the city centre, has revealed a packed schedule over the spring break for children and their parents.
As well as sailing, members of the public can get involved in kayaking and canoeing, orienteering and off-road biking. Bush craft lessons will be offered at the activity centre.
Young people can choose to take part in lessons or simple taster sessions. The more adventurous can take part in a week long outdoor activity camp, from Monday, April 8, to Friday, April 12.
The Tarn, which closed last September after a harmful blue-green algae was found in the water, has since been deemed safe.
Councillor Adam Ogilvie, Leeds City Council’s executive board member with responsibility of leisure and skills, said: “The activity centre is offering a fully packed programme for the Easter holidays with plenty of opportunities to try a range of different sports.
“These taster sessions will offer young people a great chance to try their hands at a range of water sports with trained staff at the Leeds sailing and activity centre.
“It is a great excuse for young people to get into the great outdoors and meet new people.”
Youngsters from the age of eight - and adults - are invited to take part in the different activities and learn new skills or gain qualifications in the various outdoor pursuits and watersports available at the Tarn.
Leeds Sailing and Activity Centre is on Cemetery Road, LS19 7UR. Call 0113 378 1271.
