A ROMSEY school is set launch a programme for vulnerable families.

The news comes after the Romsey Community School and Park Community school in Havant are being given a grant to co-ordinate a programme called ‘Connect4Summer’.

The programme is for children in 23 venues across Hampshire and will include a range of sports activities, healthy cooking classes for children and their parents or carers

It will also provide additional support for vulnerable families.

Headteacher Jonathan de Sausmarez of Romsey Community School said “I am really pleased that the need for vulnerable families to have support and care over the summer holidays has been recognised.

"We want to make a real difference and we are very proud to support

this much needed project.”

Both Community Managers of each school, Susan Parish and Jan Lefley reported that they wanted to provide a programme that has a future legacy, that engages families and provides them with opportunities after the summer to continue with a variety of activities.

Susan Pairsh from Park Community School said “It is very important to us that

we continue to address holiday hunger and this programme enables us to reach large

numbers of children and their families.

We will also be able to offer children good quality,

exciting activities and new opportunities whilst ensuring they are safe throughout the
