Young children around Wymondham can join in games and fitness activities as part of a programme started by Olympic tennis star Elena Baltacha-Severino.

Learn Play Grow will take place at Wymondham Leisure Centre to give 0 to seven-year-olds the chance to take part in games using a variety of equipment, music, characters and stories.

The programme was founded by Mrs Baltacha-Severino - who sadly died in 2014 - and her husband, Olympic coach Nino Severino.

Sheila Hunter, owner of Learn Play Grow Norwich said: 'Come and join Bella the Bunny for some family oriented exercise.

'There's nothing quite like exercising together as a family so brush up your moves and get ready for a unique blend of story, music, sports equipment and laughter.'

Classes cost £5 per family and if booked for the whole term include a free hot drinks voucher to use in the Centre's Café.

All parents, carers and childminders are welcome for the three sessions:

-1pm to 2pm - sessions for 0 to two-year-olds. Children can join in, watch, be carried, wander or sleep as parent/carers exercise with them in a lovely environment surrounded by like-minded people.

-2pm to 3pm - session for three to five-year-olds. Parents can join in the session at the same rate as their children providing great role models for them to watch, look up to, follow or show.

-4pm to 5pm - session for five to seven-year-olds. Children get to burn off their excess energy in a fun and socially active way while learning new skills and abilities needed for sport.
