Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council have funded five local community centres to hold fun play events during the summer holidays. These events tie in with the ‘Playday’ national campaign to highlight the importance of play in children’s lives. Play is an essential part of every child’s life and is vital for social, emotional, intellectual and physical development, as well as being part of the enjoyment of childhood!
These sessions will sustain children’s learning and development during the school break and offer opportunities for whole families to interact and socialise. For further details on what is being planned throughout the summer period and the family activities being delivered locally, please visit the council’s Children Young People and Families Team Facebook page @cypfteam.
The Playday schedule is:
Tuesday 31 July: Popley Fields Community Centre
Wednesday 1 August: Kingsclere (Fieldgate Community Centre)
Wednesday 1 August: Westside Community Centre event, Russell Howard Park
Thursday 2 August: Testbourne Community School, Whitchurch
Thursday 2 August: Viables Community Centre
