Summer of fun with RAPP and Get Activ8d
Parents and grandparents looking for a summer full of fun for kids need look no further than the Rural Areas Play Project (RAPP) and Get Activ8d playschemes.
With Olympic fun in Froyle, sun catchers in Clanfield, dragons in Whitehill & Bordon and so much more available on the RAPP programme, there’s bound to be something that sparks young minds.
The Get Activ8d programme includes basketball, tennis, football, golf, climbing and gymnastics at venues around East Hampshire.
RAPP and Get Activ8d are organised by East Hampshire District Council and have been providing fun activities across the district for 10 years. A special all-day 10th birthday party is planned for Wednesday 3 August at Buriton Village Hall with more details being revealed in the coming weeks via Facebook and Twitter.
Cllr Julie Butler, East Hampshire District Council Portfolio Holder for customer relations said: “It can sometimes be hard to find things to keep children entertained for the long summer holiday. Whether you are looking after a baby or a teenager during the summer, RAPP and Get Activ8d sessions are a great place to take them.
“RAPP and Get Activ8d have sessions all over the district so parents and grandparents will have a chance to find a session near them.”
RAPP is aimed at 4-11 year-olds with under fours able to attend for free and play with our toys. Sessions start from £4.
Get Activ8d sessions are sports activities for 7-14 year olds. Sessions cost £4-£6.
