Barton Hill Play RangersRegister as an event organiser
What's happening in May 2013
Type: After School / Holiday
Organiser: Barton Hill Settlement
Location: St George Park
During the holiday periods throughout the year the Play Rangers work in partnership with local youth/arts/sports workers(Activ8) to provide a holiday scheme aimed at providing a service for all young people aged 5 – 16 to experience a wide range of services all at one venue, to promote community cohesion and to promote a more positive community attitude towards children/ young people.
The nature of the open access sessions gives children and young people an opportunity to let off steam, play outside and enable them to use the local parks and outdoor spaces within an inclusive framework. Active 8 is run by a mix of agencies who have a vested interest in the children/ young people within the central and east areas of the Bristol locality. The area has a very diverse community and the proposed activities are designed to be accessible to all young people in the area.
