Free Play Around the Parishes and Basketball Sessions are back for the Summer Holidays

Are you looking for something free to do with your children during the summer holidays?

Organised by Buckinghamshire Council and funded by Buckingham Town Council the first session of Play Around the Parishes took place in Chandos Park on Tuesday.  These free turn-up and play sessions for 1 – 12yr olds have giant games, bouncy castles, arts and crafts and more. There will be two more sessions this year, the next one is on 17th August and then again on 22nd August.

Cllr Robin Stuchbury, Chair of the TC&E Committee had the following to say after attending the session on Tuesday “Having attended the play around the parishes today it was so good to see so many young people take advantage of this free activity funded by the Town Council and for parents and grandparents alike to take part and enjoy.”

Coach Jenner will be back on Monday 1st August, with the free turn-up and play basketball sessions. The first session will be in Chandos Park from 5:30 – 6:30pm for ages 8 – 12 yrs. The second session for 13yrs + takes place in Bourton Park starting at 6:45pm. All equipment is provided.

The basketball sessions have been running in Buckingham for several years and are very popular with local young people.  Over the years several young people have gone on to join basketball clubs in Milton Keynes and even play for the County.  Sessions will be running every Monday through August and are completely free.

Coach Jenner said "Parents, make sure you bring your child down to our welcoming basketball sessions at Chandos Park. Basketball experience is not necessary, our coaches start with the basics at first and build up participants' skills over the summer sessions. Boys and girls make friendships really quickly and it is great fun. Plus it is absolutely free."
