 MAKING jewellery, flying rockets and recreating television shows are opportunities on offer to children in Launceston this month.

The Launceston Police and Community Youth Club at Newstead is offering a holiday program for children aged 4 to 12 years with activities each week day until February 5.

Outside school hours care co-ordinator Cherie Muller said the activities were a mixture of themed activity days at the club at the corner of Abbott and Wentworth streets, and excursions around the North.

Upcoming excursions include trips to a wildlife park, a river cruise, swimming and bowling.
