RAPP+ launches after school clubs

Wednesday, 8 May, 2019

East Hampshire District Council’s Rural Areas Play Project (RAPP) is expanding with the launch of new after school sessions.

The Rural Areas Play Project promotes interactive and fun children’s activities around the district. Operating across the majority of holidays and half-terms, the service has proved its success with local children and young people for more than a decade.

And now the service is launching RAPP+, providing two new after school sessions in the district.

On Mondays RAPP+ will be running the Food Academy, funded by Radian, at Café 1759, in Whitehill & Bordon, teaching children culinary skills.

Held during term time, this is an after-school club that is foody fun for all! Young people aged eight and older can learn how to cook a meal from scratch and develop nutritional knowledge in a fun and informative way. And they will also have the added bonus of enjoying some physical activity while their dinner is cooking!

The second opportunity is a RAPP+ Out of School Club which will run at Selborne C of E Primary School on Wednesdays and Thursdays, after school, during term time. The RAPP+ team will be offering support to working parents, allowing that bit of extra time at the end of the day for the children to enjoy craft and sporting activities while being supported and entertained.

Lisa Clements, EHDC Play Development Officer, said: “We are very pleased to be working in two new partnerships with Selborne Primary School and Radian to launch RAPP+ and our first ever RAPP+ Out of School Club.

“RAPP has been a very successful service for 13 years and now RAPP+ will also give residents of East Hampshire after school activities during term time.”

RAPP+ can also offer bespoke quotes for events, parties, weddings and more. For more information please contact Lisa Clements, Play Development Officer, on 01730 234384 or lisa.clements@easthants.gov.uk
