PEOPLE can celebrate the Paralympics as part of a Light a Lantern festival.

Fareham Borough Council’s play rangers will hold the free event at Westbury Manor Museum on Tuesday.

The event will give residents the chance to have a go at a range of activities including new age kurling, rugby skills, seated volleyball, long jump, ball shots and boccia.

There will also be the opportunity to get creative and crafty and make a model of an Olympian, a twirling baton or a sound-cracker to take home.

Those who take part in three sports will also be in with the chance of winning a medal.

Councillor Connie Hockley, executive member for leisure and community, said: ‘The Light a Lantern Festival is taking place across Hampshire to mark the Paralympic Games.

‘I hope to see lots of people at this event enjoying themselves, as there will be a range of activities for everyone.’

The festival will take place from 11am until 3pm in the gardens of the museum in Fareham. Refreshments will be available.
