Buckets and spades at the ready – we’re bringing the beach to you this August summer holiday.

The Chantry beach has everything you’ll need to have fun this summer; sand, shopping, games, competitions and prizes.

Every Monday in August, from 11am – 4pm, the upper mall in the centre will become home to a Chantry Beach bonaza with lots of fun free activities for all of the family.

Each week children can take part in a themed activity including; summer sun visors, summer stories, beach funfair and summer dancefest.  There will also be a games area and the opportunity to win prizes in our summer holiday quiz!

Steve Cotney, Chantry Centre manager, said: “This is the first time we’ve bought the beach to the Chantry Centre, and it will be a fantastic attraction throughout the summer for many visitors to the centre and Andover.  A lot of our customers don’t have easy access to the seaside, so why not bring it to them. The best bit about it is that it can be enjoyed come rain or shine, you won’t need a towel and it’s free!

“Throughout August, there will also be a host of sun-filled activities for families to enjoy providing an excellent opportunity for the local community to come together and make the most of the holidays.”
