Basketball and Play Around The Parishes: Free Events in Buckingham

Organised by Buckingham Town Council, free basketball sessions were held in Buckingham during the summer holidays. This year’s sessions were every Monday from 1st August through to Monday 29th August. Two sessions took place; 8-12yr olds in the Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) in Chandos Park from 5:30pm and 13+ years in Bourton Park from 6:45 pm to 7:45pm.

Coach Jenner, a qualified coach and his wife have been holding the free turn-up and play sessions in Buckingham for 9 years and have seen some of the players progress all the way through to playing for a team in Milton Keynes and even going on to play for the county.

Due to the popularity of the sessions, extra ones will be put on next year giving young people the opportunity to continue improving their skills and have something fun and competitive to do.

Three sessions of Play Around The Parishes were held in Chandos Park. Organised by Buckinghamshire Council and funded by Buckingham Town Council, the sessions were aimed at 0 – 12 years. The free activities included a bouncy castle, arts and crafts and giant games such as Jenga and Connect. Families were able to stay for the day and enjoy the activities.

Cllr Robin Stuchbury, Chairman of the Town Centre & Events Committee said “The Town Centre & Events Committee discussed the success of the funds put into these projects and sees them as being beneficial to a wide range of the community as both events are free. The committee would like to thank all those involved in making them a success."

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."
