CELEBRATE 10 YEARS OF SOMERFORD GROVE ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND
Saturday 27th June 2015 between (2pm – 6pm) Games, Face painting, Taru Drumming and Play
The award winning Somerford Grove Adventure Playground was opened in the summer of 2005 by Haringey Play Association (HarPA) Charity, and is situated in the Northumberland Park Ward, Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey, one of the most youthful and culturally diverse areas in the UK.
The adventure playground creates space, time and an atmosphere where young people can choose, share, experiment, learn, achieve, fail, or just BE – using practical and social skills at their own pace. It is an oasis where children can be themselves, and have choice and control over what they do and why they do it.
It is the only staffed open-access Adventure Playground in Haringey where children & families can just drop in, and is currently funded with money from trusts and charities providing free, play opportunities for children and young people aged 5 to 15yrs, after school term time and in the holidays.
HarPA provides services to over 1000 Haringey residents. Skilled professional Playworkers are always present, maintaining an enriched play environment where children are encouraged to assess and manage their own risk, development & skills range.
HarPA is a dynamic charity; creating innovative programs such as “SisterHood Project” for local girls as well as playful family activities to support healthy living & well-being – enabling community cohesion and resilience.
Reduced funding from central government has impacted on all local services in Haringey. We need funding to continue to provide play provisions for the community
NEW membership packages are now available for individuals, organisations and corporate companies with benefits of reduced training & venue hire costs and more.
