National Play Day at Addison Howard Park

Friday 30th July 2010

Hundreds of children are expected to descend on Addison Howard Park on Wednesday 4th August to mark National Play Day 2010.

 

The annual event has grown in recent years, with more than 600 children attending the 2009 event at Priory Country Park and enjoying some of the fun and messy activities on offer.

 

The free event marks the annual celebration of children’s right to play and coincides with hundreds of others happening across the country on Wednesday and throughout the rest of the summer.

 

The day is aimed at children aged between five and 13 years old and offers a huge range of activities including; ‘football surprise’, sand city, blind trail, giant games, tree spirits, plenty of inflatables and much more.

 

Children under eight years of age must be accompanied by an adult. All children are advised to wear old clothes and bring a change of clothes and a towel, as some of the games may be a little messy!

 

Councillor Barry Huckle, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, said: “National Play Day is a brilliant initiative which gets children out of the house to enjoy the great outdoors.

 

“I was amazed how popular the event had become last year and I know our Play Rangers are working incredibly hard to make this year’s event even better.

 

“The day out is completely free and offers a huge range of activities for children and I urge everyone to come to Addison Howard Park on Wednesday 4th August and join in the fun.”

 

The event will take place at Addison Howard Park in Kempston from 12noon until 3pm.
