Fun and safety play day in Hailsham

A free Fun and Safety play day returns to Hailsham on Thursday February 21.

The event will take place at the Children’s Centre in Vega Close and will run from 10.30am until 1pm. A children’s entertainer, a football penalty shoot out, police van and face painting will be among the attractions. Arts and crafts, dance mats and refreshments will also form part of the fun.

The day is open to all ages but children under eight-years-old must be accompanied by an adult. The event aims to combine play with encouraging children to think about keeping safe in different situations including personal safety, the prevention of home accidents, fire prevention, food safety and community safety.

Councillor Claire Dowling, Wealden cabinet member for Community and Voluntary Sector, said, “It’s a fantastic opportunity to combine play with learning, but most importantly - it’s fun.”
