Play Satisfaction Survey

It’s really important for us to know how satisfied our users are with the outdoor play we provide, so this summer we asked 348 children and family members to tell us! A simple questionnaire was used to find out what people think about our community play provision and we’re very pleased with the results. The headline stats show that 95% of participants thought our games and activities were awesome or good, 98% thought that our Play Rangers were awesome of good and 97% said they would recommend us to their friends and family. Thanks to everyone who took part in the survey. It’s great to know that we are satisfying so many children and families, and we will use the results to help us continue to provide memorable days of adventure, friendship and fun!

PG launches new Fit For Play scheme across Gloucestershire

Fit For Play has launched and has taken offP1040977

We have recently launched Fit For Play, a programme to get children and young people to ‘Get Active, Get Outdoors and Get Fit For Play’. These play sessions are all about being active through informal sports, building dens, games such as tag, water fights and creative art.  The sessions have started fantastically, with a great turn out in numbers. In the first two months we had over 250 play visits from children and young people.

Our thanks go to Councillor Tracy Millard for funding a years’ worth of after school Fit For Play sessions in Tuffley and Linden.

Thanks to Councillor Kathy Williams for funding holiday Fit For Play sessions in Longlevens.

And most recently thanks to Councillor Graham Morgan for funding 11 holiday Fit For Play days in Ruspidge, and Councillor Richard Leppington for funding a day in Yorkley, Forest of Dean.

The launch of Fit For Play has coincided with the launch of Public Health England’s Everybody Active Every Day. The aim of this strategy is to protect and improve the nation’s health through an increase in physical activity in local communities.

The Fit For Play message is spreading far and wide recently with this article in the Gloucester Citizen.

Here is Councillor Tracy Millard enjoying a skip in Tuffley.
