The Active Hastings project is offering lots of free activities for all ages during the summer holiday.

Andy Batsford, lead councillor for leisure said: “Money, childcare, activities, and even food, are serious anxieties for low-income working families, and this can become even more difficult in the school holidays. Thanks to funding from Big Local North East Hastings, Hastings Opportunity Area, Optivo, Orbit Housing and the Safer Hastings Partnership, Active Hastings are aiming to reduce the pressure by providing a whole host of free activities within their own neighbourhoods.”
