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.

There are free activity roadshows in 28 towns and villages where children can try a variety of fun sports in a safe, supervised environment.

Opportunities to explore the countryside and visit the country parks and nature reserves include the Summer Project 2006 where parents and children can learn more about plants, mini-beasts and woodland.

Disabled people have a choice of sports and countryside activities at various locations.

INFORMATION: The majority of courses need to be booked and have limited spaces. If you book on to a leisure centre course before Sunday, July 9, you will be in with a chance to win an iPod 30gb Video MP3 player. The Summer Fun brochure is available from schools and leisure centres or can be downloaded from www.huntsleisure.org/leisurecentres
