Liverpool Play Partnership organises International Play Day
Liverpool City Council joined forces with Merseyside Play Action Council (MPAC) and Liverpool Community and Voluntary Sector (LCVS) to organise an International Play Day event, last weekend.
Hundreds of children and their families descended onto Princes Park to take part in a range of events including Obstacle Course, Karaoke, Face painting and a Disco Dome.
Councillor Emily Spurrell, Cabinet Member for Community and Safer Neighbourhoods said: ‘Play is good for both mental and physical health and supports children’s development. However, people often forget the importance of children having space to play and so events like this are so important.’
Councillor Anthony Lavelle, Assistant Cabinet Member added: ‘MPAC and LCVS put on a great event. It was fantastic to see how many children attended from across Liverpool and had a great afternoon playing with other children and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.’
