Council to mark International Children’s Day with free activities

Free activities are available to sign up to across the three leisure centres in the borough.

A NUMBER of free events are being planned across Mid and East Antrim to celebrate International Children’s Day on Wednesday 20 November.

This year will mark the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

This is the most widely ratified international treaty in the world and its ratification by the UK government has provided all children with rights to enable them to be safe, to develop, grow and flourish.

To mark the occasion, children can swim for free in Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Larne leisure centres on 20 November so get the date in your diary.

They will also be able to enjoy the activities below free of charge.
