We’re adding a pin for every area where parents, residents, a community organisation or the council (and ideally, all of them together) are starting to change things for children through play streets and related ideas. The movement is growing! See what’s happening near you and tell us if there’s anything to add. If you’re interested in starting a play street or in any other action to support children playing out, do get in touch – we can help.
In Lewisham we know of a few streets that have closed for play sessions on a one-off basis and are hoping to make it a regular thing.
If you live in Lewisham and would like to close your street for play, you can contact the council via this page.
We really loved reading this blog about this play street that was held as part of Car Free Day in 2019.
If you know of anything else happening in this area, or want some extra support from us to get going, please do get in touch!
