Apologies everyone that I have posted this in a rather irrelevant subject, but it seemed the best match and I want you all to know about this so that if you are stuck for ideas in the holidays, you may consider us.

Play Rangers offer free open access play sessions where children between the ages of 5 – 15 can come and play. Children are encouraged to help plan the sessions and choose the kind of activities that they would like.
Play activities include environmental play, arts and crafts, junk modelling, den building, parachute games, ball games, fire building and wide games.
The Play Rangers target their work to meet the Every Child Matters Outcomes, e.g. by encouraging healthy lifestyles by exercise, healthy eating, and encouraging them to be involved in their communities. (Please see our QT for more information). The Play Rangers also build relationships with the children and young people, giving the children and young people a friend and role model that they can talk to.
The Play Rangers work in parks, public spaces and within schools in South Gloucestershire. They operate on an 'open access' principle, meaning that children are free to come and go as they please, as no registration is required. By being present in the parks Play Rangers do their utmost to ensure children are kept safe yet at the same time provide opportunities for them to be challenged take risks and have fun outdoors come rain or shine. However we must emphasise, due to the nature of the environment children are responsible for their own actions. Children, who are younger than 5 years of age, must have parental supervision if they wish to join in.
