Join Fareham Play Rangers as they celebrate National Play Week with free mini play festivals for under 12's, starting on Monday and culminating in a sport themed festival on Wednesday 6th as part of National Play Day.
Fareham's Play Rangers are an outdoor play initiative funded by Fareham Borough Council and operated by a local youth work charity, Y Services. The Play Rangers tour parks and open spaces across the borough to bring free outdoor play opportunities to hundreds of children during the school holidays.
Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Councillor Connie Hockley has said:
"because play is such a significant part of children's lives, helping them develop both socially and physically, we decided to celebrate National Play Day week with a variety of free events at different locations to make it accessible to as many children as possible."
You can find the Play Rangers at the following locations next week (Monday 4th – Wednesday 6th)
Monday - 11am to 3pm Castle Street, by the Play Area, Portchester
