Friday 4/9/15. Havant Civic Day

September 4, 2015

It is a tradition that each Mayor or Chairman of Councils across Hampshire holds a Civic Day and invites their opposite numbers. Today Andy and I held ours. Our theme was Leisure and Tourisim, and we had the difficult choice of limiting these to fill just the day.

We started at Waterlooville Leisure Centre with its new extension. It has a large multi equipment Gym, a large swimming pool, and my personal favourite, an inside play area called World of Play.

We then travelled to Hayling Island where we had a traditional fish and chip lunch at the Coastguard Cafe  before a trip on the Seaside Railway. We had a short visit to the National Watersports Festival, when Alan Cross gave us a talk about this marvellous attraction. After this we went to Northney Farm where we rode in a tractor trailer to the Chichester Harbour AONB, a lovely view awaited us across the Harbour. Finishing with a Cream Tea at Northney Farm, our guests all agreed how much the Havant Borough had to offer visitors and residents alike.
