The annual FREE summer play scheme for children aged 5 to 11 gets under way at Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) on Monday 31st July 2017.
Running Monday through Friday until 25th August, the play scheme is run by the Four Towns Play Association, which receives financial assistance from Bradley Stoke Town Council.
The aim of the play scheme is to ensure children have fun over the school summer holiday and also to provide a break for parents. It is designed to support children in the local area to play and learn, in the presence of others, in a safe and child-friendly environment.
Children attending the sessions take part in arts and crafts, sport and team games. There are also visits from sports coaches, dance teachers and library staff.
Sessions run from 10.30am to 12.30pm, closing for lunch and are back in operation from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. It is essential children are collected during the lunch period as the play scheme is not covered by insurance during that period.
There is no need to book, just turn up and complete a registration form. The scheme runs on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so please arrive promptly to avoid disappointment.
Similar sessions are being held at venues in Patchway, Filton and Stoke Gifford.
