Hurstpierpoint children enjoy half-term activities

PR2152/RC/MF - 26/02/2018

Over 80 local children attended an afternoon of sport and recreational activities at Court Bushes Recreation Ground, Hurstpierpoint on Thursday 15 February.

The Skatefest event brought the local skater community together to show off their freestyle tricks. A live DJ kept the tunes flowing throughout the afternoon and offered DJ workshops so young people could have a go for themselves.

There was a range of other activities for younger children to enjoy with a Fire Engine, bouncy castle, basketball coaching and the chance to learn some circus skills with the help of trained circus performers.

The Skatefest event was organised to provide positive activities for young people to take part in during the half-term holidays. The activities were arranged by Mid Sussex District Council with support from Clarion, West Sussex County Council, Places for People Leisure, West Sussex Fire & Rescue and the local Co-op in Hurstpierpoint, which donated fresh fruit for the children to enjoy.
