Please read the below carefully as some things may have changed from previous years.
Participants must attend a secondary school based in the Borough of Fareham or be about to start in September 2022.
A parent or guardian must register their child online for Access All Areas. Once your child has been successfully registered, you will then receive a call back from the Council to finalise the booking within three working days. Calls from the Council may show up on your phone as an unknown number.
Once accepted, your child will be sent a lanyard in the post, along with an event information pack. Please make sure your child wears their lanyard at the start of each session as it lets us know that they are registered and will help to speed up the signing-in process on arrival.
Anyone not booked on the session (including any parents!) will be asked to leave as we don't want to encourage lots of people to congregate.
All the activity options can be seen at www.fareham.gov.uk/aaa.
You can choose one activity per week, each week for the month of August. However, please be aware that activities have limited spaces available and will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, you may have to be flexible with your final choices, but we will always aim to accommodate you where possible.
This year we have introduced a fee of £10 (including VAT). This works out at £2.50 per session, although the amount will still be £10 whether you decide to book just one session or all four for your child to participate in. The fee is non-refundable, and payment is taken over the telephone.
If you can't afford this fee, we are taking a limited number of referrals from our partner agencies for free spaces. There are a certain number available for each session, so please make sure your Social Worker or School Link Worker contacts the Council's Community Safety Manager to put your name forward.
If your child is feeling unwell and tests positive for Covid-19, we ask that they do not attend and that you contact us at the earliest opportunity.
Council officers will be on site for the duration of each activity, to make sure your child and our partner organisations are safe and have a great time. First aiders will also be on site in the unlikely event of any injuries.
If any of the activities that your child has been booked on needs additional parental consent, the form(s) will be included in your event information pack. These will be sent by the Leisure and Community Team at least a week before the date of the first session. You must complete the forms in order for your child to take part and completed forms should be brought with the child to the relevant session.
Some of the activities take place outside and may need to be modified or cancelled in the event of poor weather. We will try our best still to run an enjoyable session, but this may not always be possible. If there are any changes or cancellations we will notify you at the earliest opportunity using the contact details you have provided.
Your child will need to bring a change of clothes and a towel if they are doing water-based activities. And if the weather is going to be warm, please ensure your child is wearing sun cream and that they bring a drink.
Your child should bring a £1 coin or locker coin if taking part in the inflatable pool parties at either of the Leisure Centres so that they can lock their personal belongings away.
The Council cannot accept responsibility for your child's personal belongings. We recommend they bring a bag for any essential items that they may need to bring with them.
There are strictly no cigarettes, e-cigarettes, lighters, alcohol, drugs, fireworks or aerosols allowed anywhere on Access All Areas sites.
If you have any questions please contact the Leisure and Community Team on 01329 236100 or email AccessAllAreas@fareham.gov.uk.
