Dudley’s popular play week event, which is set to keep children entertained across five borough parks, invites young people of all ages to come along and enjoy a range of play activities on offer starting from Monday 30th July.
During the week there will be group games, sports and stalls. Most of the activities on offer are free of charge.
This year the week starts off at Huntingtree Park, Halesowen, on Monday 30th July, Silver Jubilee at Coseley on Tuesday 31st July. Wednesday’s event (1st August) will be at Mary Steven’s Park in Stourbridge. Dudley's Priory Park will host on Thursday 2nd August and the week will conclude on Friday 4th August at The Dell, Brockmoor, Pensnett. Each event starts at midday (12pm) and finishes at 4pm.
Joy Williams, Service Manager, said: “We always look forward to being a part of play week as it is a great way for the service to promote what we do to the local community while giving children the chance to enjoy traditional activities, learn new skills, make friends and most importantly have fun.”
“As a service we aim to empower families to provide the best possible start in life for their children. We encourage parents to drop into our stall and ask any questions they may have about the early years.”
Participants just have to complete a basic registration form at each park to join in the fun. Children under eight years need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
