Children were badly hit by the measures imposed to keep the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic in check - despite being least at risk from the disease itself. As the pandemic grinds on we must ensure that children's need and right to play is prioritised. Play has perhaps never been more important to help children cope with this strange new reality. Our now monthly bulletin comes to you on the second Tuesday of the month and aims to help anyone with children in their lives navigate the uncharted waters ahead with news, tips and fun ideas.

London Playwire November 2020

by Fiona on November 10, 2020

Lockdown 2.0 may be here but there are lots of lights on the horizon this month. First and foremost, playgrounds - and schools - remain open, which can only be good news for children.  Secondly, not one, but THREE of London's wonderful adventure playgrounds are celebrating award wins this month! Thirdly, Diwali is beckoning, and with it a host of creative and twinkly pursuits. And finally, there is talk of a possible vaccine. Not bad, all things considered. Read on for all this and much much more...

 

Oh, and please do our survey if you work or volunteer at an adventure playground!

 

 

 

 

 


London Playwire October 2020

by Fiona on October 13, 2020

Hello! How are we all doing out there? Hmmmm. Yep, the nights are drawing in. And the news is looking a bit on the grim side.  And yes, in normal times we'd be looking forward to Halloween and the great excuse it offers for amping up the playfulness and building community spirit. Times may not be normal but don't despair! Read on. 


Playwire NotSoWeekly: Tues 08 September

Hello! We reckon it's a fair assumption that there are lots of mixed feelings out there this week. Children back at school. Traffic building. Cases rising. Summer memories fading.  Autumn arriving. Yep, all that. Children will be feeling it too. And how best will they manage all this uncertainty? Playing, of course


Playwire NotSoWeekly: Tuesday 25 August

So the summer holidays are drawing to a close and we have to say 'hats off' to London's endlessly resourceful, creative and adaptable adventure playgrounds for making the magic happen for children this summer. Kudos too to all the parents and carers who kept the spirit of play alive for their children through this most unusual of summers.

How is everyone doing out there? Bit warm, innit? But what a great excuse for a water fight, and how fantastic to see all the pictures on social media showing children at adventure playgrounds across the capital just LOVING getting wet and wild! Read on for your mid summer update.
