HUNDREDS of children enjoyed a host of half term activity at a leisure centre making it the busiest on record.

More than 200 youngsters turned up to Manningtree Sports Centre in force selling out all sessions at the facility.

Extra archery classes had to be put on and a new cheerleading course was also very popular. The climbing wall was in continual use and roller disco was also a big draw.

Demand was beyond expectation and classes will now be organised for both disciplines in the coming weeks.
