Older members will remember those long hot summers of childhood, when you could play out in the street with your friends while your parents chatted to the neighbours? Well maybe those days are not gone forever! At this year’s July Summer Picnic in the Triangle, we were able to recapture a little bit of that freedom and fun by also closing part of Liphook Crescent to traffic for a few hours of Street Play.
Carefully supervised by parents and volunteer stewards, the children used the traffic free space to ride their bikes and scooters, and the hot tarmac was perfect for roller skating too. Others were inspired by the coloured chalks the Association provided to have a go at hopscotch and a little bit of street art, as well as to invent their own games. The children were also delighted to be able to play in the Triangle, a special green space bordering the road – a usually forbidden place!
It was so successful that the Association is considering organising regular Street Play sessions, perhaps for a few hours once a month. Parents who attended thought that would be a great idea, so we are planning a few more trial runs to test popularity and canvas resident’s opinion – especially from members living around the Triangle. Do let us know what you think of the idea.
Pimms and Play Street Fun for all at the annual TLERA picnic in the Triangle. Free to all members of Tewkesbury Lodge Estate Residents’ Association. New residents welcome. See you there!
