You know I’m a huge fan of giving children lots of opportunity to play outside and enjoy the space and freedom they have when they’re out of doors. Whether we’re making fairy gardens or woodland jewellery we try to get outside everyday whatever the weather. Today I wanted to let you know about an amazing opportunity you have to transform a local park or playspace that you know but which might be a little neglected or in need of some new resources.
Ready for Ten, a website I contribute to, have today launched a huge Parents for Playgrounds campaign. Patsy Kensit is sitting in as guest editor for a month and together with Play England is on a mission to donate a £15,000 park renovation bursary. I wanted to let you know about the campaign because you have the chance to nominate which park you think should be given the £15,000, giving your community a chance to benefit.
To find out more about the Parents for Playgrounds campaign, head over to Ready for Ten. You can nominate your favourite park and pick up lots more ideas about how to make the most of outdoor play.
