 Young people can keep the boredom at bay during the Easter holiday thanks to a series of free activities hosted by the fire service.

"We have been hosting these events during school holidays for a while now and not only are they extremely popular among young people and their parents, they also help to reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour so are a benefit to the whole community."

Young people can keep the boredom at bay during the Easter holiday thanks to a series of free activities hosted by the fire service.

The popular portable sporting arena - StreetStadiaTM - will be entertaining eight-17-year-olds in the west of the county throughout the break.

StreetStadiaTM transforms open space into a dynamic sporting arena where youngsters can enjoy an assortment of free games and activities including handball, cricket, tennis, netball and other team building games.

Carmel Warren, Prevention Manager for the west of the county, said: "StreetStadiaTM is a great way for young people to let off steam during the Easter break, to make new friends and enjoy some team sports. We have been hosting these events during school holidays for a while now and not only are they extremely popular among young people and their parents, they also help to reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour so are a benefit to the whole community. I would encourage children and teenagers to go along, have some fun and meet their local firefighters, community safety officers and volunteers.to a series of free activities hosted by the fire service."
