Activities for Children

Craft activities and displays for children are offered all through the year at Abingdon County Hall Museum. Subjects in the coming months include using clay to copy skills used in ancient times, robot making, getting kids inspired by mosaics and also Roman shields. There is a special section of the website for the Museum and crafts even for adults. Look out for intersting activities run by some very special people during some weekends, holidays and half terms.

Have you been to Abbey Meadows recently? The play area has a lot of new things to see and do this season. The outdoor pool, always popular, is open with better changing facilities and an improved swimming pool. Until early September you can swim but look at the pool timetable in advance as the sessions are timed and  sometimes get booked up - don't waste your journey. The leisure centre at Abingdon School has some open sessions and there are buses every ten minutes to the open air pool near Abingdon Road in Oxford. 

You will find a lot on the sports and leisure pages of our District Council including a Sporteering challenge from June to 23rd September which gives valuable free membership of GLL leisure centres including the ones mentioned here.
