Adventure play

Cherry Lane and Millpond adventure playgrounds will be open as normal during the summer period from Monday 26 July to Friday 27 August.

All sessions will be open access and no booking is required. Do be aware that at peak times we may have to limit numbers using the playgrounds.

The tuck shop will not be in operation, with staff being present on a supervisory basis only.

How we work

Children and young people can enjoy the freedom to play, making choices and maybe even take a risk or two in the safety of the playground.

We have qualified play staff on site who encourage children to get the best out of their visit. We plan our work around our observations and feedback from children and young people. We do not tolerate any form of aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff.

The playgrounds are supported by local people and others. People volunteer in many ways, from donations of paint, wood and old shop fittings to helping with the tuck shop, activities and events. We always need pens, paper, big cardboard boxes, dressing up clothes, old blankets and duvet covers.

For more information about how to get involved talk to our playworkers at any site or you can email the Play Service.
