Come out to play
ANY children who love playing sport, building dens or cooking outside should head down to the University of Gloucestershire's Oxstalls campus on August 30 for a day-long festival of outdoor play.
The Love Outdoor Play festival, which is organised by Play Gloucestershire, aims to get children and families to play outside more often.
It follows a county-wide campaign of roadshows that were set up to provide a range of outdoor activities to children in Gloucestershire aged between seven and 16.
Play Gloucestershire is a branch of Play England, a group that campaigns to raise awareness about the importance of outdoor play for children.
