A COMMUNITY centre in Ringwood has unveiled a packed programme of summer activities with comedy and circus skill events.

Carvers Clubhouse’s “Summer of Play” activity programme has been inspired by a national campaign to give children the time, space, and freedom to play this summer as Covid restrictions are eased.

The programme, which runs for the school summer holidays, features organised and informal opportunities for play and fun.

August 6

  • Youngsters can embrace their inner clown when the Steamship Circus visits on August 6 for a circus skills day.

August 10

  • Matt Ware, renowned table tennis coach, will be available on August 10 to give adults and children tips to improve their game.

August 13

  • Join Krazy Kev who will be performing his comedy and magic show.

Saturday football

  • Ringwood Town Football Club will be providing coaching for children aged six and above and nine and above every Saturday during August.

Free or low cost activities

A spokesperson for Carver’s Clubhouse said: “Activities are available either free or at a very low cost to ensure that all local families can take part.

“Even if you do not want to take part in the activities you can come down to Carvers Recreation Ground and enjoy the skate park, play area, new football goals and table tennis table.

“The Clubhouse has a popular community café and during opening hours (generally 10am to 5pm) you can borrow sports equipment (footballs, rugby balls, table tennis bats and balls, even a rounders set) or outdoor games such as Jenga and there are toys to keep young children and toddlers entertained."

Carvers Clubhouse is owned and managed by Ringwood Town Council and is situated on Carvers Recreation Ground.
