Festival set to go with a splash

Monday, 3 July, 2017

Residents in the borough are being invited to try something new at this month's Waterfest.

The new style festival will be celebrating all types of watersports whilst offering pre-booked taster sessions for stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing and much more.

Waterfest will be taking place on 22 and 23 July at Portsmouth Watersports Centre, between 10am and 4pm, with the pre-booked one hour taster sessions being offered for just £5.

The discounted activities are being offered by Havant Borough Council to anyone living in the borough aged over seven, with no upper age limit.

Cabinet Lead for Communities and Housing, Councillor Leah Turner, said: “Havant Borough Council are happy to support Waterfest. We hope the skills learnt will be valuable for residents when they use them on the waters of Hayling Island.”

Booking is essential and can be made by contacting Portsmouth Watersports Centre on 023 9266 3873.
