Torfaen Play easter fun

Over 1,000 children have taken part in a fun-filled Easter half term break, thanks to Torfaen Council’s Play Service.

Held in schools across the borough, a series of play and wellbeing camps offered a vibrant mix of Easter-themed activities, sports, team games, and sessions focused on wellbeing.

The fun didn’t stop there. Cwmbran Stadium was home to a bustling play & activity camp, with additional open access sites offered at Mount Pleasant Hall, Victory Church, and Ysgol Gymraeg Cwmbran.

Daily Respite Sessions were also provided to a further 95 children and young people with additional support needs.

Torfaen Council’s Executive Member for Children, Families and Education, Cllr Richard Clark, said: “Our Play Service is renowned for its exceptional delivery of play and respite services up and down the Borough. The commitment of our volunteers never ceases to impress me, as they create a secure and engaging environment for our children to learn, grow, and have fun.

“Moreover, these provisions offer immense relief to families over the half-term break, providing many parents with the reassurance that their children are in a safe, enriching environment."
