Hundreds of children have fun at playscheme
Published 04/08/14



CHILDREN enjoyed the activities on offer at the Henley Outdoor Playscheme this week.

More than 200 attended each day of the week-long scheme at Trinity School in Church Street.

The annual event, which has been running for 30 years, provides fun during the summer holidays for youngsters in school years one to seven.

There were different workshops each day, including woodwork, arts and crafts, cooking, sewing, hair braiding, yoga, tag rugby, animals, football, first aid, dancing and zorbing.

There were also bouncy castles and inflatable slides and traditional fairground rides such as cups and saucers and wooden swings.


Vanessa Lakatos, owner of the Deep clothing store in Reading Road and chairwoman of HOPS, said: “It has gone very well and everyone seemed to be very happy.

“We can take up to 250 children a day and were fully booked on Wednesday and very nearly full on the other days.

“When the children came to register at 8.45am on Monday it started raining and we had to move everyone inside but the sun came out later which was great.”

Fifty people helped out, including 30 teenagers who volunteered. There were refreshments, a tuck shop and a crèche for the younger children of volunteers.

Molly Collings, 10, of Swiss Farm, Henley, said: “It’s really fun. There are lots of different things you can do. You are never bored, which is really nice.”
