The value of play

This is our main woodland Brockley Lane, Brickyard Wood, Chelvey, Bristol BS48 4AH (Click image to link to google maps)


Playing is integral to children’s enjoyment of their lives, their health and their development.

Children and young people – disabled and non-disabled – whatever their age, culture, ethnicity or social and economic background, need and want to play, indoors and out, in whatever way they can. Through playing, children are creating their own culture, developing their abilities, exploring their creativity and learning about themselves, other people and the world around them.

Children need and want to stretch and challenge themselves when they play. Play provision and play space that is stimulating and exciting allows children to encounter and learn about risk. This helps them to build confidence, learn skills and develop resilience at their own pace.. (Play England Charter for children’s play.)

At Play in the woods shared Bristol Water's post. ... See MoreSee Less

Can all customers in the Clevedon area boil their water before use, until further notice. This boil notice is affecting customers with the postcodes BS21 and BS49. One test result from the raw water quality samples taken at Clevedon treatment works detected a low level of Cryptosporidrum, also known as ‘Crypto’. Therefore, the advice to boil the water is a precaution. The treatment works has been taken out of operation and is no longer supplying water to customers. We are supplying bottled water to vulnerable customers in the area and we are contacting schools directly. Bristol Water staff will be hand delivering notices to properties affected by the notice and those staff are happy to answer any questions you may have. A fact sheet is available on the Bristol Water website, www.bristolwater.co.uk for advice on what actions customers should take.
