Water way to enjoy summer holidays
6:30pm Friday 3rd August 2012 in News
YOUNG people from Oxford can chill out this summer water skiing, snowboarding, ice skating and DJing, or sweat off the heat with dance, basketball and football, courtesy of Oxford City Council .
The council’s Positive Futures team is organising fun outdoor activities for young people in Barton, Berinsfield, Wood Farm, Littlemore and East Oxford throughout August.
Grant Singleton, 11, from Blackbird Leys, went water-skiing on Tuesday at Berinsfield lake with his cousin Kaine.
He said: “It was difficult. When you get on the skis it really hurts your legs and chest, but it was a lot of fun.”
Last year 1,377 young people attended the activities and this year’s budget confirmed funding for sessions for the next three years. To find out more, click on the link
