Students from the University of Gloucestershire help out too with both groups. A small charge may apply.

Play Gloucestershire’s Play Rangers are in Springfield Park every Wednesday. Meet us after school between 4 and 6pm or in school holidays between 10am and 4pm. Look out for our big blue van parked by the big play area. We provide active and creative play activities for school aged children and all our activities are free. Under 7’s should be accompanied by a parent or carer. The project is funded by Gloucestershire County Council’s Active Together scheme, and sponsored by local Councillor Suzanne Williams. We encourage families to get outdoors and get fit for play by using the wonderful natural features and play equipment in Springfield Park, as well as enjoying the Play Rangers and the equipment they bring with them. Come and join us! Visit
