The playground is based in Daubeney Fields and managed by the Learning Trust. Skilled playworkers are on hand to encourage and make possible access to a range of play opportunities and experiences – from swinging, climbing and digging to building dens, cooking and painting. Adventure playgrounds are usually open after school, on Saturdays and in the holidays, and accept children aged from six to 15 years.

VIY activity at the club

This project was part of our Big VIY Challenge weekend. Over this weekend the young participants built ladders, a hut, benches and did lots of painting.
