AN outdoor activity centre in Bromsgrove is offering family fun sessions for the first time throughout the summer holidays.

Shooting 4 Fun, based at the Oakland Outdoor Activity Centre in Hanbury, has been running outdoor pursuits for corporate team building days, weddings and children's parties since 2006.

This weekend will be the first time the Ditchford Bank Road centre has opened its facilities to smaller families.

Groups of two adults and up to three children can take part in archery or rifle shooting sessions with expert tuition and equipment provided. Each activity lasts an hour and a half.

There will also be opportunities for two families to band together for a laser tag battle in the 4.5 acre woodland. Groups must consist of two adults and up to four children over the age of six.

Families are welcome to take a picnic with them to enjoy in the woods after the activities.

Mark Treverton, who runs Shooting 4 Fun, said: “We want to offer local families as alternative to the large, busy theme parks this summer. Our rural setting is a peaceful, safe environment where families can enjoy time outside together, having fun and learning a new skill.”

Family sessions will run from Saturday, July 22 to September 2. Pre-booking is essential. For more information call Mark on 01527 575 141 or search S4Fun on Facebook.
