We Can Do It!

This summer discover new activities, parks and outdoor spaces in your local area.

We Can Do It Through the 'we can do it!' campaign we want to encourage everyone to get out and about in the local area to enjoy a wide range of activities and things to do.

This could range from visiting one of our lovely parks and playgrounds, taking part in something from our arts and events diary or having fun with all the family trying to find historical sites in our Aldershot heritage trails 

It doesn't matter if you are young or old, on your own, part of a couple, a family, or a group of friends - just dare to be different and try something new. Take a look at the activities on this page and take the plunge!
