WHERE THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A PLAY!
In line with Government advice our playground sessions at Indigos Go Wild, Wild Fox and Fort Apache are now closed; and you cannot visit us at ASRUS or Great Parks either ☹
BUT over the last few weeks we’ve designed a PLAY PACK with bundles of scrap and craft materials for families – thoughtfully assembled so that the contents can lead to many different possibilities!
Thanks to the National Lottery and Sanctuary Housing, Play Torbay is delighted that all the children, young people, parents and carers who regularly come to the playgrounds in Foxhole, Barton and Brixham and those who come to ASRUS and Great Parks will be receiving a PLAY PACK on their doorstep full to the brim with lots of amazing stuff to make and do.
Play Torbay will then be contacting all the families by phone to let them know about how they can join with friends and come ZOOMING WITH PLAY PACKS over the next 8 weeks starting on Wednesday 22 April.
Alternatively Play Torbay can make contact individually about ways to use the PLAY PACK
Each Friday there will a live video session for everyone on Facebook from one of our Adventure Playgrounds with fun things to try at home and a chance to check how the chickens are managing through the ‘lockdown’.
Just to say a lot of the materials in the Play Packs are from the Children’s Scrapstore in Bristol, a reuse charity dedicated to helping businesses divert reusable waste away from landfill to improve play and creativity for children and families – making waste things play things.
If you know a family who would enjoy a PLAY PACK please introduce them to us and we will see if we can help. We are applying to different funders to raise funds to create more PLAY PACKS and we are actively exploring creating packs with recycled materials from local sources so that costs can be reduced.
We can be contacted by email on email@example.com
