summer playscheme 2023

Summer Playscheme is returning in 2023!

Dodington Parish Council is delighted to announce that its popular free Summer Playscheme is returning this year!  We are offering three weeks of fun in our Parish Hall on Finch Road for local children aged between 5 and 10 years old.

This year’s Playscheme runs for three weeks from Monday 24th July – Friday 11th August.  Sessions are mornings only.  Pre-booking for Playscheme has now closed and we look forward to welcoming children who are booked to attend Playscheme.

***** Pre-booking for Playscheme has now closed and allocation has been made.  We are currently fully-booked.  We have also closed our waiting list now as we have a number of children waiting for a space *****

Please find our schedule of activities for week 3!: SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES 2023 WEEK 3

We can offer one week at Playscheme per child, so please indicate on the form which week is preferred.  Priority is given to children living within Dodington Parish.

We will do our best to accommodate everyone on their preferred week.  We regret that we will not take bookings for individual days, only week-long bookings will be accepted.   There are many benefits to the children joining us for a week – they have time to make friendships, get a chance to try all the activities on offer and get used to the routine.  The activities schedule is repeated each week – so all children joining us have the same opportunities to do everything, such as crafts, outdoor play, watch a movie, learn forest skills and watch an entertainer.  We have lots of fun at Playscheme!

Priority will be given to children living in Dodington Parish, which covers homes in the Birds Estate area, Shire Way area (inc. Kelston Close, Slimbridge Close, Bredon and Witcombe) and homes in Dodington, Wapley and Codrington.  Please contact the Parish Office if you are unsure.  

We will do our best to accommodate everyone for Summer Playscheme and will operate a waiting list in the event of being over-subscribed.  Please see our bookings and allocation policy here: DPC Playscheme Policy 2023

Please view our Privacy Policy here: DPC Privacy Policy  We will use any personal data collected only for the purpose of administering Summer Playscheme 2023.

Once we receive your booking form, we will process it and allocate spaces by 23rd June.  We will contact you by email to confirm your booking.  Please bear with us during the booking and allocation period – we expect to get at least 200 registrations!
