Press Release

19 September 2016

Summer success 

It was a summer of fun in Fareham as over 5,000 children and young people enjoyed free activities laid on by Fareham Borough Council.

The Council put on a whole range of exciting activities throughout the Borough to keep children and their families entertained over the summer holidays.

Access All Areas was a huge success. Over 1,100 people registered online for free events this year, which is a big increase from 2015.

Activities for 11-16 year olds were bigger and better too; among the favourites were a total wipe-out course, an inflatable pool party, and a free fun fair exclusive to 'Access All Areas' for the whole day.

Children under 11 had their own fun events. Mini Play Mornings were held at Stubbington Recreation Ground and Fareham Leisure Centre and included soft play, giant inflatables and arts and crafts.

National Play Day was attended by over 600 children and adults.  Youngsters had a real fun day and were able to build their own den, toast marshmallows on a camp fire and make a mini beast!

Thumbs Up Thursday took place throughout the holidays in the town centre.  Passers-by might have seen young people enjoying free bungee trampoline sessions, crazy golf, giant inflatables and a petting farm.

Chairman of the Fareham Community Safety Partnership, Cllr Trevor Cartwright, said: "It was an amazing summer for children and young people who had the chance to take part in some really fun and different activities that they would never normally be able to do."

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Sue Bell, said: "A huge amount of work went into organising these events and I would like to say thank you to all involved, including those who sponsored the events. I hope everyone had a wonderful time!"
