Summer playschemes

We're expecting the usual annual summer scheme in Perry Hall Park to begin on August 8th for one week. Full details will be posted here when we get them.

The annual scheme which has run for many years at the end of July fell foul of budget cuts - so the ward councillors have stepped into agree some community chest allocation to support a week of activity.

In Turnberry Park there is  a playscheme running on Fridays from 3pm to 6pm until the end of July - for children aged from five to 13.
