October Holiday Activities 2021

Free physical activity sessions in Mole Valley for 5 - 12 year olds this October!

Following on from the Summer Holiday Activities, Mole Valley District Council is again offering a range of free outdoor activities for school-aged children. The activities will take place over three days in October, spread across Ashtead, Dorking and Leatherhead, where children will have the chance to try a new sport or practice a well-loved one. Sessions are open, inclusive and accessible to all abilities. 

There is no booking system in place prior to the day for Tag Rugby, Dodgeball, football and cricket. It will be done on a first come first serve basis on the day. You are allowed to attend all four sessions from 10am - 2pm if you wish, as they are one after another, or if you prefer you can attend just one or two. We strongly advise that you turn up in plenty of time before 10am to avoid disappointment of missing out on your chosen session, as you'll need to register with us on the day and there is a capacity of 32 per session. 

Even if you'd like to only attend a session at 12pm or 1pm, we'd still advise you turn up before 10am to ensure you get booked on. 

Please note: Angling at Meadowbank is now sold out and we are no longer taking bookings. 

For safeguarding purposes, all participants will be required to fill out this form prior to taking part.

Important: Please check this page in case activities need to be cancelled due to the weather.
