Free Play sessions in Craigavon!!

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council to launch free traditional outdoor play and events programme in Craigavon on Saturday 27th July.

‘Play in the Community’ is a free, fun new programme for children and parents/guardians across the borough of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, giving families and communities access to a broad range of play and an opportunity to build positive relationships through play.

The project is funded by the PEACE IV Programme, a cross-border initiative, financed through the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). It has been designed to support peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland.

The exciting play programme will take place in four central areas in Craigavon: Tullygally, Parkmore, Moyraverty and Drumgor. Parents and family members who take part in the four sessions in any of the areas will be offered the opportunity to train and gain qualifications in Playwork – all FREE of charge!
