AN ACTION-PACKED season of fun and games has been entertaining hundreds of youngsters this summer as Gainsborough Town Council do their best to keep kids busy.

Paintballing, football, skateboarding and archery are just a few of the many activities that have been put on by the council as part of their season of summer activities at the Levellings throughout August.

Town Council activities officer Holly Parker said that the events were going down a storm with local youngsters.

“Everyone has really been enjoying themselves. Not only that, but everything is free – apart from the paintballing.”

“There’s just so much going on – from zorbs, a skate park, and inflatable boxing to football, sports and volleyball which is being run by YASIG.”

She continued: “Every day has been really well-attended – even when it’s been pouring with rain. Everything is staffed and safe and it keeps youngsters entertained and out of trouble.”

“It has been been funded by the community safety partnership so huge thanks have to go to West Lindsey District Council, YASIG and Dave Jones.”

Holly added: “You simply can’t be young and bored in Gainsborough – not if we’ve got anything to do with it!”
