Supporting the Adventure Playground

The St George’s Day Event at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground on 26th April was a success! There were lots of new faces and it was good to see girls playing on the newly opened aerial runway which was recently fixed by staff and members of the Users Group.

The Users Group also did a flag making activity and made drinks for the children. As an occasional worker on the playground, I know how valuable the help of volunteers is: it allows children to get more one-to-one attention. With the staff being congratulated by the Council for the 12% increase in attendance figures, more people are needed to join the Users Group.

As a playworker particularly interested in giving children a space for creative expression and adventurous physical play in natural scenery, I am very happy to see an increased number of children of all ages at the playground, especially with the new under-fives area.

Sheffield Futures also use the site once a week. It is indeed an increasingly useful commodity!

If you'd like to get involved with the Users Group in any way, please contact Lisa Swift on 07855 726 653.
