Have your say

ENTERTAIN your children this half term with a free scheme for kids up to 12 years olds.

Fareham Borough Council is putting on its free Play Rangers activities again, offering fun activities at a variety of locations.

Children can turn up on the day for any of the activity sessions, which include den making and Halloween crafts and games.

Executive member for leisure and community Cllr Sue Bell said: ‘I encourage everyone to get out and enjoy the fresh air and make some new friends this half-term.’

Parents are responsible for their children at all times and children under eight years must be accompanied by an adult.

The sessions start on Monday, with den making and nature play between 10am and 2pm, at Holly Hill Woodland Park, Barnes Lane, Sarisbury Green.

Then on Tuesday, between 10am and midday, there will be crafts and games at the Genesis youth centre, Centre Way, Locks Heath Shopping Centre.

On Wednesday, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm, there will be a scavenger hunt outside Portchester Community Centre, in Westlands Grove.

Then on Friday there’ll be Halloween crafts and games, from 10am until midday, at Fareham NW Community Centre, in Henry Cort Drive, and from 1.30pm until 3.30pm, at Stubbington Recreation Ground, in Bells Lane.
