YOUNGSTERS are being encouraged to go for gold this summer by taking part in Olympic-themed activities.
To coincide with this summer’s Beijing Olympics and Huddersfield’s own Sporting Greats exhibition, children are being invited to go for their own gold, silver and bronze awards by taking part in a series of fun events.
The free two days of activities include sports, historical games and messy fun.
They are set to take place in and around Tolson Museum, Ravensknowle Park, where the Our Sporting Greats exhibition, looking at successful Kirklees sports men and women, is being held.
The family-friendly events take place on August 14 and 28, from 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.
They are unsuitable for large groups and playschemes and children aged under eight must be accompanied by an adult.
The Gold, Silver and Bronze event is part of Summer Buzz, a programme of summer activities for children and young people.
