The weekend & holiday play project
Our weekend play provision provides a safe place for children to play and socialize. Our activities encourage healthy lifestyles through physical activity, healthy eating and having fun.
We deliver a programme of environmental activities that give local children and young people a chance to develop an understanding and appreciation of the natural environment alongside sports activities, cooking, games, arts & crafts and more. Click to download weekends July Aug Sep 2017

During the weekend, 8 – 14s can register with us, so we can ensure their safety while they are on site, however under 8s must be accompanied by a parent/carer aged at least 16. We welcome families with u8s, and there are lots of activities to join in with, gardening, crafts, or building projects and sport activities.
