Free play activities are on their way for families this summer in South Somerset thanks to our new PlayBox scheme.
This year, to ensure the safety of children, adults and our teams, we have had to cancel our Playdays, YouthDays and School’s Out summer activities due to Covid-19.
However, all is not lost, as we are still providing South Somerset families with play alternatives this summer with PlayBox. PlayBox is a free activity box including arts and crafts, baking and outdoor play idea, and environmental activities.
The PlayBoxes will be given out at our collection points across South Somerset on the following dates between 11am and 2pm:
- 4th August – Kingsbury Episcopi Recreation Ground
- 5th August – Cale Park, Wincanton
- 6th August – Jocelyn Park, Chard
- 7th August – Yeovil Recreation Ground, Mudford Road, Yeovil
To receive a box, you will need to visit one of our collection points. We have a limited stock and will be giving the boxes out on a first come first served basis.
One box will be given to each child aged between five and 11 years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult. There will be different PlayBoxes to choose from covering a range of activities.
There will be a booklet listing the activities featured in each box to help you make your decision before reaching the collection point.
