Jill Cronin, South Ayrshire Council's Head of Enterprise Development, and Leisure, said, that this year's programme has a lot to offer, "To help families make the most of the Easter break we've put on an exciting calendar of events to cater for most tastes.

"With swimming free at our pools there is also a full range of activities on offer across South Ayrshire, most of which can be tried out for as little as £3 per activity.

"I'm sure this year will prove to be popular with our children and young people and I'd encourage anyone looking to try something different to check out the activities on offer as soon as possible."
