Wellpark Welly Wanderers 15-16

Benefits of Outdoor Play


We have recently been awarded Lottery Funding to take forward the Wellpark Welly Wanderers Project. We are very excited about this new venture and hope that all our parents will benefit from the project throughout the year.

The Aim of the Project

Research has shown that parents are concerned that children are no longer spending time outdoors (Play England,2011). 72% of adults played outdoors compared with 40% today. This project aims to engage parents and their children in a range of outdoor activities using local community facilities such as Finlaystone Country Park & Lunderston Bay. It is hoped that by having access to outdoor facilities parents and children will benefit by having improved physical and mental wellbeing. Children will develop a love of outdoors and parents will be encouraged to use outdoor facilities in the local area.

Our Plan

We will run thirty sessions throughout the year both morning and afternoons. Transport will be provided free as will waterproofs to ensure parents have no barriers to accessing this project.
