Enjoying a staycation and stuck for ideas to keep the youngsters entertained? On a budget? We thought you ought to know about a fantastic opportunity open to you.
From 29 July to 23 August your children could enjoy up to 8 days of fun activities, enjoy a 2-course hot meal, and even the opportunity to take food home, all for free!
If you live in Hampshire more than 20 schools and community venues are part of a great “connect4summer” initiative run by Hampshire community organisation RCS and supported by Hampshire County Council and the Department of Education.
There’s a great range of free activities across the venues – sport, craft, cooking, dancing, martial arts, woodwork, circus skills and more.
Children do need to be accompanied by an adult throughout the day, between 10am and 3pm.
Remember it’s free – so it’s a great initiative to take advantage of if like many people you are on a tight holiday budget for days out and entertainment.
