PEOPLE living in Stamshaw and Tipner can explore history, arts, sport and fun and games at new community event.

On Saturday, August 17, the Stamshaw and Tipner Community Fair will take place from 11am to 3pm at Alexandra Park.

Express FM will be playing music as well as compering activities within the central arena which will include performances from local dance groups.

Energetic attendees can take part in a Village Olympics competition and sports taster sessions from the Mountbatten Centre while kids enjoy the face painting and children’s rides on offer.

The event is being organised by Portsmouth City Council as part of its activity to promote the regeneration work being done in the area.

Cllr Jason Fazackarley, councillor for Nelson ward, said: ‘While the regeneration of Tipner will have many benefits in the future, it’s good to see organisations involved in the regeneration work giving something back to the community now.’
