Sir,

School children were given a day off in Campbeltown on Monday as it was an in-service day for the teachers.

My 10 and 11-year-olds went to the swimming pool at Aqualibrium only to be told it was adults only lane swimming till 3.30pm.

They visited the cinema, but the films were a 12A at 2pm, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which they could go to if an adult was present, or a 15, A Star is Born at 2.15pm.

There is little enough to do during the day for children in the winter months without two of the major attractions being unavailable.
