White Oak Leisure Centre in Swanley hosts 'spy training' for children on summer holidays

With Daniel Craig rumoured to have agreed to star in more 007 movies, wannabe secret agents were still honing their spy skills just in case they were needed.

Budding Bonds were tested on their speed, stealth, aim, and agility during training sessions at White Oak Leisure Centre in Swanley last week, as part of the venue’s summer holiday programme.

The children engaged in some target practice, dodged lasers, and learned to roll like a ninja over the course of a morning of activities.

Cat Ledbetter took on the role of MI6 handler in training the young recruits, who harnessed their strength by punching the soft play equipment and leaping onto trampolines.

The centre’s programme manager, Bobbie Harrington,, said: “It went really well, we had a full class of 14 six to 11-year-olds who were put through a number of tests.

“Everyone who completed all the challenges got a spy licence.”

Still to come at White Oak this summer is Dino Hunters, with the centre having spared no expense in coming up with themed activities.

Children will be tasked with swinging from ropes like a true adventurer and uncovering their own fossils, which they can take home with them.

Parents should book their children’s place at reception in advance to avoid disappointment.
