HAP is made up of a small team of local parents whose responsibility it is to take care of Hawkesbury’s play equipment; the playground and skatepark. HAP (which used to be called the Play Committee) operates as an off-shoot of the Village Hall Committee. We are a registered charity.
Every year we have to raise enough funds to insure and maintain the play facilities, but we have also set ourselves the really ambitious goal to begin fundraising for renovation of the playground.

The board consists of young people coming together to explore issues such as internet safety, missing children, and the way services work with young people. Members can achieve a volunteering award, which can be used as part of DofE.
It allows young people to voice their opinion and make changes to things that affect the communities we live in.
We meet regularly with senior management and councillors to share our opinions and views and have a say in the development of the service. We also keep them up to date with young people’s issues.
We have young people representing each area of South Gloucestershire, aged between 13 – 19 (25 for young people with learning difficulties and/ or disabilities).
