HELP is at hand for parents anxious about how to keep their children amused during the school holidays.
Huntingdonshire District Council has launched a 32-page Summer Fun brochure of sport and leisure activities for children and teenagers.
The leisure centres in St Ives, Huntingdon, St Neots, Ramsey and Sawtry all have impressive facilities enabling them to provide a wide range of activities, says the council.
"Kids' holiday clubs are a popular choice as somewhere parents can leave children for the day in a fun, caring and exciting environment with experienced staff supervising all activities," a spokesman said.
"The swimming pools offer more sessions for children and families during the school holidays, so everyone gets the chance to have a splash and cool down. Swimming crash courses are also available at all centres."
In other venues throughout Huntingdonshire there are outdoor courses such as sailing, power boating, rowing, canoeing, cricket, golf and tennis.
