An outside education centre charity is reopening its doors to spring life back into young people who have been trapped inside for months during the coronavirus lockdown.

The Anderton Centre, based at Lower Rivington Reservoir, is reopening in line with safety measures to offer exciting outdoor activities for kids and young people.

The Centre, which is part of the University of Bolton Group, offers a wide range of water and land-based activities to revitalise youngsters and encourage the rebuilding of bonds with friends after many months locked inside.

With lockdown measures easing, the centre has implemented many stringent safety measures to make the centre covid secure and safe for the return of children.

David Germain, head of The Anderton Centre, said it is the perfect time and venue for children to have fun in the fresh air after months of being cooped up at home.

David said: "We have been hard at work behind the scenes over the past weeks to adapt the site to make it Covid-secure and have introduced rigorous risk assessment procedures.

"As schools start to slowly ease out of lockdown, consideration should be made to children's physical health and wellbeing, in addition to their formal education.

"We understand how important it is for children to return to their formal education, however, their physical health and wellbeing is of equal importance, especially during these unprecedented times."

David added that he feels we need to bring positivity back to children's lives.

He said: "It is important that we offset the negativity of recent events surrounding Covid-19.

"Children have been restricted from their normal social movements and displaced from their usual learning routines.

"Our fantastic facilities are ideal to help children burn off their energy and boost their self-confidence, whilst enabling them to have fun in a safe setting before returning to a classroom environment."
