EASTLEIGH College is gearing up for its first ever Community Day.

On Saturday, May 17, between 10am and 2pm, the college in Chestnut Avenue will be opening its doors to local residents and their families.

There will be a range of hands-on activities, including a digital and creative zone, a craft market, cookery, a pit stop challenge, Dance Kinect, emergency services demonstrations, remote control cars, a bouncy castle and face painting.

There will also be the chance to receive careers advice, and learn about full-and part-time courses that start in September.

The event is part of the Festival of Learning organised by The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education.
