Post Covid we recognise that the needs of our local community has changed where families and parents are looking for safe places for their children to play. Our target age and priority is 8 - 15 yrs, However we do welcome families with younger children, Please bear in mind that younger children will be the responsibility of the parent / carer.

"Play is an essential part of a child's life and vital to their development.

It is the way children explore the world around them and develop and practice their skills.

 

It is essential for physical, emotional and spiritual growth, for intellectual and emotional development, and acquiring social and behavioural skills."
