Rangers ready to play again

BOOK now if you want to join the play rangers adventure this summer.

Children aged five-13 can take part in the ever-popular summer play rangers programme run by North Herts District Council. Booking forms are currently being distributed to schools ahead of the summer holiday scheme, while details will be on the North Herts District Council website from July 1.

Sessions usually take place on Therfield Heath, and in various villages around Crow country, and involve activities such as arts, crafts, sports, and junk modelling.

Cllr Tricia Cowley, NHDC Portfolio Holder for Community Engagement, said: “Play Rangers are always popular with sessions attracting literally dozens of children.

“The emphasis is on playing outside, using some of the wonderful parks and open spaces in the district. Parents don’t feel they can let children wander about the way they used to and they can’t always be around to supervise. Play rangers offers young people the chance to build dens, have adventures and just muck around in a good old-fashioned way.”
