A bumper summer of activities

THERE’S no excuse for being bored in Newhaven this summer with a bumper programme of activities for young people.

The Newhaven Summer Activities Programme, co-ordinated by Wave Leisure, runs from July 23-September 4.

With different local organisations involved in running the programme, it will give those aged up to 24 the chance to try something new, meet new people and visit a different venue every day from Monday to Friday.

Newhaven Mayor Cllr Graham Amy said: “This is a great summer initiative brought about through positive partnerships with local organisations working together.”

Activities include NIPPERS at Shakespeare Hall and karate, dance, dodgeball and big bounce at Shakespeare Hall.

There will be cricket, tennis, fun football and play out in Fort Road Recreation Ground and youth drop in at Denton Island Community Centre.

Skate out will be at Fort Road Skate Park, youth club at Lewes Road hut and employment and return to work programmes from Sussex Downs College.

Family play days will be at the Newhaven Children’s Centre and regular swim and fun sessions at Seahaven Swim and Fitness Centre. Newhaven Town Council has co-sponsored the programme.

The printed programme will be available from the Swim and Fitness Centre and the town council offices in Fort Road. Visit www.waveleisure.co.uk.
