Our activities are packed with fun, action and adventure and include water sports, arts and crafts and multisports.ÊYou will see one of our little Go4It mascots next to each activity letting you know what the suitable age is for each session. We have a lot going on for toddlers right up to teenagers and families so please check the ages before you book. All our holiday activities are run by qualified and experienced coaches that are DBS checked to an enhanced level and are fully aware of safety and child protection laws. There’s loads to choose from, so have a good flick through to get planning your next exciting half term and join us for what will be Go4It and Link4Life’s most exciting 6 months yet!Ê The Natural History Museum’s most famous dinosaur, Dippy the Diplodocus has left the museum to go on tour of the UK, and Rochdale is his only North West stop. Celebrate Dippy’s arrival and join us for an exciting range of dinosaur themed activities. In the middle of this booklet you will find our Jurassic Journey.
