About Us

Connect4Summer was first delivered in 2019 by Susan Parish (Park Community School) and Jan Lefley (Romsey Community School) across Hampshire and on the borders of Southampton and Portsmouth. This was funded by the Department for Education Holiday Activities Fund.

2021 will be the 3rd year that we have run Connect4Families and whilst adhering to Covid restrictions we successfully ran a programme at Easter 2021. The funding this year is being distributed to local authorities by the DfE and in partnership with Hampshire County Council we are running a series of one day Family Festival Days in Fareham, Test Valley, Havant, East Hants and New Forest. We are also running Youth Projects in Havant and Test Valley.

Families will be able to take part in a whole range of activities including arts and craft, circus skills, sports, enjoy good food and great entertainment provided.
