Register for Free Summer Events in Winchester and Fareham
Press Release: 23/06/2014
Registration has opened for this year’s Access All Areas, which is a programme of free summer events for 11 – 17 year olds. This year, Winchester and Fareham Community Safety Partnerships have joined up to provide activities across the two areas.
All 11 – 17 years olds can register, as long as they live or go to school in Winchester or Fareham. The partnerships have also joined up with First and Stagecoach to offer free bus travel to and from events.
Chairman of the Fareham Community Safety Partnership Cllr Arthur Mandry said:
This is a great opportunity for young people to come and have a go at some fun activities for free, that they might not usually have the chance to do. They can come along to as many events as they like, whether they live in Fareham or Winchester, so there’s no excuse for summer holiday boredom!
Winchester City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Safety, Cllr Mike Southgate said
Partnership working has been really important in getting this off the ground and we are delighted that we can work across authority as well as supporting the work of the Police & Crime Commissioner. If it is to be a true success we need young people to come along and enjoy the experience.
The summer events will be held from 11am-3pm each day, kicking off on Monday 28 July and finishing on Wednesday 13 August, with the grand finale ‘Whestival’ which will take place in Whiteley from 5pm – 9pm.
There are lots of great activities this year including quad biking, archery, scuba diving, laser quest, driving lessons, Music Fusion workshops, henna tattooing, hair chalking, gladiator jousting, assault course, crazy golf and much more. There will also be a free BBQ at all the events.
Fareham and Winchester Community Safety Partnerships will also be visiting schools in their area where young people will be able to register.
