This video celebrates the completion of our Bag of Play campaign. Children always need to play, and especially now which is why we decided to create and deliver 1,500 Bags of Play to vulnerable children and families across Gloucestershire during the Covid-19 outbreak.


Due to current government restrictions on public gatherings, play spaces closing and the advice to STAY AT HOME, Play Gloucestershire’s Play Rangers have gone online and become the VIRTUAL PLAY RANGERS.

We will be using social media outlets to provide instructions for you all to have a go at some favourite Play Ranger activities.

At 10am each morning we will post an activity you can try at home or while you are out on your once a day exercise trip. In addition to this playful and active idea, at 2pm each day we will be sharing an idea or a link to something we feel can help with you and your family’s well-being generally.

Our plan is to create and curate content to share with everyone so you can continue to be playful. Follow us on social media for the VIRTUAL PLAY RANGERS updates and more.
