Local families enjoyed the half-term sunshine at the Wisbech Adventure Playground on Friday (22 February) as they joined local dignitaries to celebrate the opening of a new Learning Bus.
Councillor Simon Bywater, Chairman of the Children and Young People’s Committee, Cambridgeshire, County Council, supported by the Mayor of Wisbech, Councillor Peter Human, opened the Learning Bus donated by the former Cambridge New Street Ragged School Trust.
The Learning Bus will be used for family events and learning and will be free for use by partner organisations in the local community who provide support to children and families in the Waterlees area of Wisbech.
Cllr Bywater said: “We are delighted to welcome the Learning Bus, which will be a superb addition to the Playground and provides additional space for events and activities for young people, adults and families.
“We are very proud of all that we can offer the children and families of Waterlees and it was great to hear from the local organisations and young helpers who shared their experiences of how important the Adventure Playground is to them.”
Through adventure and play, the highly skilled Playwork Team at the Playground work to make a positive difference to the lives of local children and young people. The aim is to promote their physical, mental and social development and to raise aspirations. The Playground provides play opportunities for all children and young people, one to one support and small group work.
