It is easy to hire 1st Place. Use the menu bar to find “Booking 1st Place”.
Our new building (it’s definitely not a hut anymore!) will be open after half term. It still won’t have a vinyl floor because the concrete isn’t yet ready to allow the floor to stick to it. But that won’t stop everyone getting settled in and having fun!
Hampshire Chronicle and The Daily Echo have both been publishing our building developments. Check them out via our Facebook page
We need loads of volunteers every weekend in September. Look at our programme under Building Appeal/Fundraising & Events and commit to all the days you can. If we don’t complete, we can’t re-open.
Most of the roof is on and the steelwork is going in to complete the frame for the extension. The project remains on schedule and pretty much to budget. Amazing! But do you know who might want to donate £8000 for a folding door? Or £25,000 for an external store? Or £9000 for a canopy? Ideas to email@example.com
We want people to follow us on Twitter before and during the 12-13th July event. You can search for conversations on Twitter using #TheLongHaul. You don’t need to follow anyone to see these conversations! Just add #TheLongHaul into your tweet and you’ll see what everyone is saying! Start doing it now and get used to it. It will mean you’ll know exactly where the cart is throughout the weekend and how much we are raising as we make our way to Winchester!
On Saturday 14th June our chairman, Dave Kesby appeared live on BBC Radio Solent. If you missed it, don’t worry, you can catch up on iPlayer. Dave was ther to review the papers but managed a plug for the Long Haul Campaign.

After a series of interviews, the YMCA has been chosen as the provider of the pre-school in the new hut. This is an exciting choice, the YMCA already have ten pre-schools (four of which are outstanding) in Hampshire, as well as Fairthorne Manor.
A huge thanks to everyone who turned up yesterday to help knock down the inside of the hut. Mission accomplished and we are now ready for the builders to start in the next few weeks.
We are in need of a team of parents to help us demolish the hut ready for the builders to begin their work. Saturday 10th May is Demolition Day, a BBQ will be provided at lunchtime.
Children are welcome to come along although they will remain your responsibility throughout the day. Sledgehammers will be provided!
We cannot do this without some help – please sign up for a couple of hours at least. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm you’re coming (we need to know how many sausages to buy!) or sign up on the sheet in the Hut from Monday.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
