galaxyRattray Road Play Streets is a community activity that provides a safe area for children to ‘play out’ on the last Sunday of the month. The activity is run by a group of volunteer parents/carers who organise the road closure, publicise the day, gather together play equipment and provide snacks and drinks. The street (in Brixton) is closed to traffic between 3-6pm (with road closure signs provided by Lambeth Council) and volunteers make sure drivers are informed and re-directed. This activity encourages children to ‘reclaim the street’, make new friends, share toys and games, build confidence and develop a sense of communal ownership. Many of the children who attend are in foster care, receive free school dinners and/or are otherwise living in challenging circumstances. We feel very strongly that this activity helps children to develop friendships whilst playing happily and healthily in a familiar and safe environment. Rattray Road Play Street encourages children to put their coat on and ‘go out and play’!
