About us

The playground is staffed by qualified playworkers and youthworkers throughout the year, opening after school Tuesday’s to Friday’s (3.30 – 6pm) and Saturdays (10.30-2, then closed for lunch, re-open from 3pm – 6pm)  during term times and Tuesday’s to Friday’s all day during school holidays. We have over 1,000 registered users plus accompanied casual use by up to another thousand children. We can see usership from 450/day to 20/day (summer holiday/winter after-school). In addition to open access play, the site has become known as a place to get informal (ie not ‘official’) support, is a food bank and clothes/bedding bank distributor, a referral point for children and parents into other services and a meeting point for parents and families, many of whom experience isolation.
