A poetry challenge to get kids writing about the seasons hopes it will encourage children and families to visit the countryside.
Fareham Borough Council is calling on children aged 16 and under to write poems about 'Summer'. The poems will then be displayed on Warsash Common's poetry path, a 1-2 mile walk featuring the verses from local children.
The walk ends with an array of poems hanging from the branches of a prominent oak and provides an additional challenge for the contributing poets to locate their poem.
Executive Member of Leisure and Community, Councillor Connie Hockley said: "The poetry path at Warsash Common is a great way for children to explore their creativity and the countryside. We hope participants, their families and others will be encouraged to visit the site and marvel at the lyrical talent whilst they walk".
Children's poems can be submitted to the Countryside Service (Leisure and Community), Fareham Borough Council, Civic Way, Fareham or sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
