A COUNCIL service is looking for volunteers to come out and play.

Fareham Borough Council’s play ranger service wants people over 16 to help run its popular free sessions for young people.

The sessions take place across the borough, at a variety of locations, providing young people with opportunities they would not normally experience by playing alone or at home.

The service has recently acquired plenty of equipment such as football goals, badminton nets, tyre swings and loads of arts and craft materials.

Cllr Connie Hockley, in charge of community matters, said: ‘These open play sessions have been extremely popular with the younger residents of the borough. I want to encourage local residents to volunteer and get involved with all the fun.’

Anyone interested should email or call (01329) 824441. All volunteers will be required to undertake a short interview and complete a criminal records bureau check.
