Free Summer Programme 2017 in the Big Local area​

Big Local has worked with Hastings Borough Council and Optivo Housing Association to ensure that there are regular, free play and street games sessions for children of all ages throughout the Big Local area.  We have provided funds to boost the Council's summer programme so that there will be more for children to do in the Big Local area.  The Council's booklet "Active Hastings Summer Programme" tells you about all provision in the town.  Shown below are the places, dates and times of sessions in (and around) the Big Local area.   For more information call Active Hastings on 01424 451051 or email activehastings@hastings.gov.uk
