Play Schemes


2017 Playscheme

The Parish Council's summer playscheme for 6 to 11 year olds ran successfully again in 2016 and will be taking place again this summer from Monday 31st July to Friday 4th August 2017.

There is no charge for children to attend our playscheme, as the whole scheme is subsidised by the Parish Council, and the children are taken care of by qualified personnel. There is plenty to do, with indoor craft activities in the Community Association building and a variety of outdoor activities in the Recreation Ground.

Parish Play in the Park Scheme

The regular Play in the Park sessions at the Recreation Ground organised by Chelmsford City Council and funded by the Parish Council took place again in the Easter holidays and will also be taking place in the summer school holidays. These are free to participants. There will be sports, arts and crafts, games and free play to enjoy.  All sessions are supervised by trained and experienced staff.  Is it possible to pre-book or just register on the day. 

Summer holiday dates are:
Tuesday 8th August
Wednesday 9th August
Thursday 10th August
Tuesday 15th August
Wednesday 16th August
Thursday 17th August.

All sessions run from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.


Online registration
To reduce the time needed to register children at the start of each Play in the Park session, you can now give register your child's details in advance.

The online form registers your intent to attend specific venues at Play in the Park during summer 2017. Each session has a maximum of 300 spaces.  150 spaces are pre-bookable, with the rest being kept back for registrations on the day.
If you do not sign in to a session you have registered for 30 minutes after the session starts, we will release your place to on-the-day attendees.
The registration deadline for each week of the holiday is midday on Friday the previous week. If you miss this deadline you can just turn up at a session and give your details at the desk.

Please note, you will have to complete one form per child.

Further details and to register please visit Chelmsford City Council website.
