This Christmas, Leisure World Colchester is offering a new service for parents who need short-term childcare while they shop.
Convenient and fun, Shop & Drop sessions offer plenty to keep children entertained for a few hours while you relax, shop, wrap presents or run errands in Colchester.
Children aged 5 to 16 can enjoy activities including inflatables, ball games and group fun. Parents can relax knowing their children are under the full supervision of qualified staff.
Shop & Drop mornings will be held at the leisure complex from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Saturday 2, Sunday 3 and Saturday 16 December. Shop & Drop sessions cost just £8 per child and includes free parking at Leisure World, only a fifteen-minute walk from the High Street, while your child is enjoying their session.
Cllr Annie Feltham, said: “Shopping with the whole family can be difficult, especially if you need to buy presents for the children without them noticing! Shop & Drop sessions are a great idea to ensure that everyone can enjoy a relaxing day out in Colchester, taking the pressure off busy parents who know their kids are in safe hands.”
During the Christmas school holidays Aqua Fun sessions are ideal for kids who enjoy swimming and playing on the inflatable floating fun run – an exciting watery obstacle course to run, slide, jump and climb through.
For younger children who are non-swimmers or beginners, Aqua Splat sessions are a lot of fun. With an inflatable submarine in the teaching pool, under-fives can burn off energy and make new friends while they play. Pick up your Aqua Fun/Splat loyalty card from our Welcome Zone, collect nine stamps and get your tenth Aqua Fun/Splat session for free.
The Leisure Pool is also opening longer for general swim during the school break, so there is plenty to keep children busy.
