Link4Life is a charity based at the heart of Rochdale committed to helping local residents to be more active, creative and healthy. There is a stream of help on hand to offer support and for you to get involved; whatever your circumstances. This brochure highlights all of the great programmes and activities that Link4Life delivers in the heart of local communities within Rochdale. Our extended Children and Young Peoples Programme continues to flourish and expand. Our play schemes, which offer a lower cost alternative to holiday childcare, continue to successfully grow with Go4it Holiday Club being offered during every school holiday at both Middleton Arena and Heywood Sports Village. More details can be found on pages 4-11. Heading into 2020, we have an exciting year ahead with the world famous Diplodocus dinosaur cast from the Natural History Museum coming to Rochdale as part of his UK tour. You will meet Dippy himself at Number One Riverside and enjoy a natural history themed exhibition at Touchstones Rochdale. Here, Rochdale’s scientists of tomorrow will be able to explore all aspects of the natural world, from the dark swamplands of millions of years ago to our future planet and what it might look like. Your whole Dippy experience in Rochdale is free of charge. Dippy will be in Rochdale from 10 February to 28 June 2020. There will also be a complete schedule of exciting dinosaur themed activities to choose from across all Link4Life venues.  Full details of all dinosaur themed activities will be available on our website, www.link4life.org, soon.
