Thankfully Newhaven Community Development Association (NCDA) has the answer as it has organised a week full of free activities including Egyptian artefact making, mural painting, a craft and food event and a family bingo walk.

Jenny Leon from NCDA said: “You can put your worries behind you as NCDA have planned a week of free activities for you and your family. “From art projects to bingo walks we’ve got it all.

“Make sure you book your places as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
