GBC Play groups for under 12’s to return

Playrangers will be running five fortnightly sessions until the school summer holidays


Children under 12 can enjoy fun, free and exciting play sessions across our borough again with the return of our after-school Playrangers sessions on Tuesday 20 April. 

Playrangers sessions are led by experienced play workers who encourage children to play freely outdoors. The sessions let the children choose what they want to do but our Playrangers bring plenty of ideas, equipment and games to make them even more enjoyable. 

Director of Service Delivery, Ian Doyle says: 

Our Play Workers can’t wait to welcome back all of the children who have missed their play sessions. Due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and the government’s national lockdown rules our last play session was in November 2020. We are following government and Public Health England’s advice and will have safety measures in place including social distancing to keep children safe. Dates for our sessions have changed and will have a reduced capacity.” 

Ian Doyle adds: “Play is vital for young people’s development, health and wellbeing. Our Playrangers sessions are a great way for children in the borough to have fun, express themselves and make friends.” 


Playrangers will be running five fortnightly sessions until the school summer holidays at the following sites. Each two-hour session starts at 3.30pm: 

  • Pirbright – from Tuesday 20 April (Pirbright Village Green, GU24 0JE) 
  • Park Barn – from Wednesday 21 April (Park Barn Drive, Guildford, GU2 8EU)
