Play Around the Parishes

These days out have been catered towards children between the ages of one and 10.

Starting on Monday (25 July) the programme runs until 26 August, sports fields and village halls have been earmarked to host the free fun.

Councillor Clive Harriss said: “We are excited to be working with local town and parish councils to run 25 sessions over 20 parishes this year. There is no need to book beforehand, just turn up on the day, bring a picnic and have fun.”

The local authority confirms that all sessions are run by DBS-checked professionals and cautions that some activities are weather-dependent.

Parents and carers must stay to supervise their children, bring their own refreshments and be aware that some sites may not have toilets.
