A RANGE of activities designed to keep young people off the streets and having fun has been announced by Gosport Borough Council.

Youngsters taking part in the fourth Summer Passport scheme can ride in a hot air balloon, go scuba diving or try their hand at fishing.

The scheme aims to provide activities for young people to deter anti-social behaviour.

Carly Northcott, the council’s scheme co-ordinator, said: ‘It gets youngsters to travel around the borough and try new things.

‘Last year it contributed towards a reduction of crime.’

The scheme, which runs from August 1, will finish with a Hollywood-themed celebration at Brune Park Community College on August 12.

Awards will be given out to young people who have shown talent in areas such as creativity, cooking, dancing and sportsmanship.

Registration for the two-week scheme costs £1. Participants must be born before September 1, 1999 and live or go to school in Gosport.
