Fit For Play has launched and has taken offP1040977

We have recently launched Fit For Play, a programme to get children and young people to ‘Get Active, Get Outdoors and Get Fit For Play’. These play sessions are all about being active through informal sports, building dens, games such as tag, water fights and creative art.  The sessions have started fantastically, with a great turn out in numbers. In the first two months we had over 250 play visits from children and young people.

Our thanks go to Councillor Tracy Millard for funding a years’ worth of after school Fit For Play sessions in Tuffley and Linden.

Thanks to Councillor Kathy Williams for funding holiday Fit For Play sessions in Longlevens.

And most recently thanks to Councillor Graham Morgan for funding 11 holiday Fit For Play days in Ruspidge, and Councillor Richard Leppington for funding a day in Yorkley, Forest of Dean.

The launch of Fit For Play has coincided with the launch of Public Health England’s Everybody Active Every Day. The aim of this strategy is to protect and improve the nation’s health through an increase in physical activity in local communities.

The Fit For Play message is spreading far and wide recently with this article in the Gloucester Citizen.

Here is Councillor Tracy Millard enjoying a skip in Tuffley.
