Play Gloucestershire’s Play Rangers - Coming to Dursley

Thu, 01 Aug 2019 10:00

Do you love to play outdoors? This summer, thanks to funding from Gloucestershire County Councillor Loraine Patrick under the Growing Our Communities programme, the Play Rangers will be bringing their special brand of free, fun child-led play to Dursley and villages across the locality. Dursley, Coaley, Leonard Stanley and Uley will all host visits from children's charity Play Gloucestershire.

In Dursley, the play days will be based at The War Memorial Recreation Ground and Highfields Play Area. Activities will include active play such as tennis, tag, football and cricket and creative play such as scrap model making, den building and giant bubbles. Each play day starts at 10am when the Play Rangers set up activities chosen by local children. Throughout the day different activities pop up and the day ends at 4pm after everyone has tidied up and packed away.
