The playground now has a large building that houses a soft play room for under 8s,a craft room where activities such as t/shirt printing and dyeing take place, clay modelling, kite making, marbelling, junk play, jewellery and candle making are just some of the other craft activities we can offer.
The main room contains a pool table, table football, tv games consoles and table games also the opportunity to just sit and draw or talk together.
Outside there is a large run-a-round structure, ariel runway and American swing, also an under 8s area, with water and sand play, all set in a large grassed area. We have just had a toilet/shower block built at the rear of the building to compliment a multi use games court. The playground also has a huge bouncy castle which we use on the playground, and at National Playday. We also let the schools in the community use it for fundraising events.
Other off site activities include residentials in the Wye Valley, where young people enjoy activities such as mountain biking, fishing, and both day and night walking. Another favourite off site activity is Lazerquest, where groups of young people can stage mock battles without damaging themselves or others. In the past we have enjoyed coach trips to the seaside at Weston Super Mare or Barry Island. Young people are encouraged to budget their own money and to sort out any disputes they may have through talking
