A FUN-FILLED summer holiday is in store for youngsters across East Hampshire as the Rural Areas Play Project (RAPP) and Get Activ8d schemes are back with some exciting activities throughout July and August.

The RAPP vans will be visiting towns and villages across East Hampshire, including Whitehill and Bordon, Horndean and Alton, as well as trips to Butser Ancient Farm and the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre in Selborne.

Activities will include meadow-exploring to discover minibeasts, trees and plants; river-exploring with under-the-microscope investigations; a magic show from Magic Nikki; den-building with a wobble and waterproof test; splash sessions with water balloons and fountains; crazy golf and bug-house-building.

RAPP was set up by East Hampshire District Council to give children up to the age of 11 – under-eights must be accompanied by an adult – the opportunity to get involved in activities, games, adventures, workshops and meet new friends in the school holidays.
