Fit for Play in 2015

Our Fit for Play programme uses play as a way of getting people active without the need for organised games, sporting events or specialised equipment.

Looking back over 2015 we were very busy with Fit for Play sessions taking place all over the county. Observing and taking part in play we quickly realised how active you get during games of tag, building dens, or joining informal games of sport such as football, table tennis or cricket.  Please take a look at the linked infographics for more information and highlights.

Thanks to Councillors Richard Leppington, Tracy Millard, Graham Morgan, Pamela Tracy, Kathy Williams & Suzanne Williams who used their Gloucestershire County Council  ACTIVE TOGETHER funding to provide Fit For Play sessions in 8 areas across the county.

Fit For Play sessions will continue this year and we are happy to discuss options on how to get our Play Rangers to other areas.

Merry Christmas!

Play in the Dark

As 2015 draws to a close, our Rangers are in the last week of play delivery before they go off for a well-deserved break with their families. Dark play is in full swing at after school sessions, with manhunt featuring high on the list of favourite games in the dark. Our team enjoy this time of year, gathering around the fire pit with sociable conversations and some campfire cooking to fuel the high octane games. On some sites, conversations are for the whole family, from toddlers to grandparents. On other sites, attendance is dominated by teenagers at this time of year, and the Rangers explore some difficult topics with young people in the anonymous glow of the fire pit. One thing’s for sure – our reliable Rangers are there whatever the weather and in the last few weeks we’ve experienced a lot of rain, mud and high winds. We’re a resilient crew and we understand that after a day at school our mix of outdoor play, healthy snacks and time with our kind and fun Rangers is what children need. Come and see us before we shut down for our Christmas break!
