Play in the Park

Easter 2014 Play in the Park programme now available!


Play in the Park is a series of free two-hour multi-activity sessions for children aged 6-11 at various community and parish venues during the Easter & Summer Holidays. Join the Play Workers for sports, arts, crafts, games and free-play.

Some sessions will cater for younger children; check programme for details. Look out for the sessions with extra activities such as bouncy castles, circus skills and animal handling!

Conditions for taking part:

  • Children aged 6-11 can stay without parents. Children aged under 6 must be supervised by a parent or guardian aged over 18 at all times.
  • Children aged under 8 must be dropped off and picked up by an adult. A password will be required.
  • If your child is arriving alone please ensure they bring an emergency contact number with them.
  • There is no need to pre-register; just turn up on the day and visit the registration desk.
  • Please ensure your child wears suitable clothing for playing games, that they bring a drink, and that they are prepared for any weather.


Most activities are based outside. Gazebos provide shade and shelter for arts activities and in inclement weather.
