#ChooseGuildford this Autumn


Join a Playrangers session 

Playrangers is an exciting project which encourages children to play outdoors. Free sessions are held after school in six locations around Guildford. All children are welcome to join. The Playrangers are qualified and experienced play workers. They run play sessions based on using the natural environment as well as child-led play.  

They are a great way for children and young people to   

  • get outside  
  • be active  
  • make new friends   
  • learn new skills  

Sessions are aimed at eight to twelve year olds, but younger children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Autumn sessions start in Pirbright on Monday 11 September 2023. Find out how to join the Playrangers on their next adventure!
