This year’s Playday will be very different as it will take place in communities all over Wrexham rather than on Llwyn Isaf and Queens Square.
But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty for your children to get involved with – not only on Playday 4 August but throughout the week as we’ve teamed up with the Summer of Play to make sure children can enjoy being out and about this year.
Like last year it’s going to be different but there’s still a lot to take part in to make sure that children don’t miss out this year.
Play Work projects are operating around the county borough and as part of the Summer of Fun our Play Team will be putting on fun Circus Skills sessions as part of the projects. You can read more about where these are below:
We will also be joining with our friends at Play Wales to hide a number of their children’s books “Fun in the Dungeon” and “Fun in the Garden” all over Wrexham, anyone lucky enough to find a copy will get to keep it.
To mark Playday and the Summer of Play the Play and Youth Support Team will be setting a number of playful geocaches. If you are not familiar with geocaching have a look at the geocache app and start practicing your caching skills ready for Playday.
Clybiau Plant Cymru are hiding a number of QR codes…
with playful ideas on them across Wales, we will be making sure that these are spread out across Wrexham.
And don’t forget our partners at Xplore Science will be playing in their walkway both on Playday and at the weekends either side of the event.
“Playday is a day to remember”
Cllr John Pritchard, Lead Member for Youth Services and Anti Poverty, said, “Once again our Play Team has worked hard to make sure that Playday 2021 is a day to remember for lots of children.
“We’ll all miss the usual bursting town centre and especially the chalk marks all over the Guildhall and Queen’s Square but I hope parents and children take advantage of what’s on offer and wish everyone a very successful and enjoyable day.”
