Play Rangers
The FREE Play Ranger sessions will be returning this October half term (Monday 24- Friday 28 October). Please find the flyer attached above.
Children aged 6 to 12 years old are invited to come and join in with any of the sessions running across the borough. Children can just turn up on the day – no booking needed - and join in with rounders, hockey, dodgeball, handball and of course football. There are also jewellery making and drawing activities available.
Children should bring drinks, trainers, sports kit and waterproofs with them, though.
Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council has again funded the project, with CHILD UK running all sessions.  All of the coaches are CRB checked and hold Emergency Aid certificates, while all staff have various sport National Governing Body Qualifications. Find out more at: (
