Quality fun and games for youngsters during half-term

Schools might have gone back this morning after the half-term holiday but local youngsters were never short of something to do while they were off.

Skating was a big hit!

Things to do included crazy golf, trampolining, crafts, roller skating, nerf wars and tennis and all the activities were free of charge as part of a funding grant from Hastings Opportunity Area.

Andy Batsford, Hastings Borough Council’s lead councillor for leisure said: “Over the half term it can be a real struggle for families to keep the kids entertained, fed and out of trouble, so I am so proud of the programme our council’s Active Hastings crew deliver all over the town offering quality fun activities delivered by friendly quality staff, top job!”

Thanks to Hastings Opportunity Area funding, Active Hastings can run free weekly after school activities for 11 to 16 year olds too.

Active Hastings is a partnership project run by Hastings Borough Council with East Sussex County Council, it offers free and low cost activities for all ages across the borough. Find out what is on offer at www.activehastings.org.uk
