Playscheme 26

Friday 4th August sees this year's Haddenham Playscheme drawing to a close, after a busy week of fun for local children.

As many parents know and appreciate, the Playscheme is a community run week of activities for local school children, facilitated by a group of hard-working volunteers for one week during the summer holidays. It has now been running for over 30 years!

The scheme offered a wide programme of activities for children aged 5-11 years, including:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Cookery
  • Woodwork
  • Dance Workshops
  • Specialist Sports Coaching
  • Sewing
  • Jewellery Making
  • Bouncy Inflatables
  • and so much more!

The lead coordinator once again was Shelley Smith although, after many years in the role, she will be handing over the reins for 2018.

As the week at the Community Junior School drew to a close Shelley had this to say:

"Wow what a week! We're almost at the end of Playscheme week and almost the end of my final year in organising the Playscheme. I'm leaving it in the capable hands of Abi Armstrong and wish her all the luck for future years. She could do with some help though, the future of playscheme is at risk! Please speak to Abi if interested in helping with 2018 — it's a great community run scheme and lots of fun!"
