London Playwire Weekly (page 1 of 4)
Schools and most adventure playgrounds are closed, and children are largely isolated in their households. This is the new 'normal'. But play must not stop - in fact it has perhaps never been more important to help children cope with this strange new reality. Our new weekly bulletin - coming to you each Tuesday - aims to help anyone with children in their lives navigate the uncharted waters ahead with tips, fun ideas and news.

Schoooooool's out for SUMMER! Adventure playgrounds are back... THANK GOODNESS! If you work in or live near one of London's magical adventure playgrounds you are the lucky ones in this summer of strangeness.
Wow. So the summer holidays begin next week and with them comes a whole new phase of adaptation for children, parents and carers and play workers. It will be far from the summer we might have imagined at the year's outset!
So much news this week, you are in for a treat! Firstly, the government has finally shared its thoughts on how holiday play providers should operate. About time, we say! Public playgrounds are back... or are they? AND we share the findings of our play street survey. But before you even get to all that, you can enjoy a lovely welcome and update from our friends at Triangle.
Three weeks out from the summer holidays and there are more than a few playworkers and parents thinking 'whaaaaaat' in the face of continuing official silence on summer play provision. We continue to push for clarity and guidance; and ahead of public playgrounds opening up this weekend, call for play streets to resume as well.
Hey hey! Well this might be issue 13 but today has been faaaar from unlucky for those of us in the serious business of play. Boris actually had some good news for children. Well it's a start, at least, isn't it?
