CHILDREN on their summer holidays can take advantage of five weeks of free fun at locations across the county.
In the Zone events, organised by Sevenoaks District Council will be taking place at 23 locations across the district over the school summer holidays.
Children up to the age of 12 can join in activities, including challenges with the Army Cadet Force, Pavement Art and Jewellery Making and Go Karting around an inflatable track.
Pat Bosley, council cabinet member for young people, said: "The In the Zone programme is a great way to get out in the sunshine with your children.
"It is a chance to relax and unwind and have a really enjoyable day playing games, craft making and trying out new activities."
Last summer over 2,000 children and their families came along to the In the Zone events.
Starting on Monday, the activities will run every weekday until August 28 from 11am to 3.30pm.
Booking is not required and all children must be accompanied by a parent or carer.
