David Sharp, chief executive said: “We are very aware that the cost of living is affecting families and that many people are having to make choices about their spending decisions.

"Even though our own costs are rising, we believe that by holding our prices we will be able to help more families in these difficult economic times.”

The centre will also be offering a range of discounts for bookings made in winter months when more indoor activities will be included in its programmes.

All of the activities are delivered by fully qualified and experienced instructors and all staff hold the relevant National Governing Body (NGB) qualification or complete intensive in-house training.

All activity staff undertake basic youth work training to make sure the young people get the maximum out of their visit.
