About our Summer of Play

Our school holiday programme has been inspired by a national campaign to give children the time, space and freedom to play this summer as COVID restrictions are eased. After everything that children and families have been through this year, we wanted to create both structured and unstructured opportunities for play and fun. So, you can choose to come to one of the organised activities below OR come down to Carvers Recreation Ground and enjoy the skate park, play area, new football goals and table tennis table. During café opening hours you can borrow sports equipment (footballs, rugby balls, table tennis bats and balls, even a rounders set) or outdoor games such as Jenga and we have toys for young children and toddlers. Our café is relaxed and friendly. We have a new menu including milkshakes, hot and cold food and snacks, ice cream and children’s lunch boxes. We hope you enjoy yourselves.
