Councillor Connie Hockley, executive member for leisure and community, said: ‘So far this summer the Play Rangers has provided free fun activities for up to 40 children each day across Fareham.

‘The various locations make it accessible to as many families as possible and the different themes each day make it appealing for return visits with many children attending more than one session a week.’

Today, children can enjoy a backyard beach at Portchester Community Centre and den making on Thursday at Fareham North West Community Centre.

What’s on this week...
