Summer 2017 #PGTurns10
Phew! What a summer of play that was.
In our tenth year providing outdoor play opportunities to children, young people and their families across Gloucestershire, we had one of our busiest holidays yet.
Across 27 different sites in Gloucestershire we provided 82 play events, including 5 roadshows celebrating Play Gloucestershire turning 10 years old, and two festivals including our own PlayFest. Nearly 500 hours of FREE child led play was offered and over 3680 play visits tells us that people want to play outdoors more than ever, and they tell us they NEED to play outdoors to feel good mentally and physically.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our new Instagram account (@playgloucestershire) to read more about the stories of our summer. For now our Play Rangers are having a well-deserved rest, whilst catching up on paperwork and reporting to funders. We return to after school play session from Monday 11th September, details on the TIMETABLES tab above.
Thanks to all of those that made our Summer 2017 a memorable one, special thanks to our AMAZING staff and volunteers.
