Join the fun at Wisbech Play Day

The summer is here so why not come along and enjoy an afternoon of fun activities at Wisbech Adventure Playground in August?

Adventures for all the family are planned for the annual Play Day event on 7 August, including face painting, junk modelling, a tombola and a virtual treasure hunt, while a range of community organisations will have stalls to provide information to the public.

Children will be able to have a go on a waterslide, while there will be arts and crafts and stalls and games. 

A stall providing glitter tattoos will also be present, while refreshments including ice cream will also be available.

 Entertainment will be provided by a Caribbean Steel Band, while organisations with stands will include St John’s Ambulance, Everyone Health, Peterborough Regional College, Nova, Oasis Children’s Centre and Healthwatch.

 The Play Day will be held between 11am and 3pm and is part of national play day events.

Councillor Simon Bywater, Chairman of the Children and Young People Committee, said: “The Play Day is a great opportunity for families to get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful summer weather while taking part in some enjoyable summer activities.

 “Visitors will also be able to find out some information about a range of local organisations while enjoying the sun and the chance for some healthy fresh air in the great outdoors.”

Through adventure and play the play-workers based at the playground genuinely make a positive difference to children and young people through promoting their personal development, building positive relationships, raising aspirations and improving their life chances.

The Playground is a place where children can come to play freely in their own way, allowing them to make sense of the world around them - a place that they can call their own, where they discover who they are and can be themselves. It is importantly a safe place for children to play with friends and meet new people, to learn to communicate with others and develop positive relationships.
