Trustee Andy Kennedy said: ‘This is an exciting opportunity for us to provide free play sessions in the Gosport area.

‘It’s something that we have been asked to provide by families for the past few years.

‘Our focus initially will be at Forton Recreation Ground, where we also provide a free football session on a weekly basis.

‘Our aim is to increase easily accessible, positive activities in the community.’
