See how the street play movement is growing across the UK
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 by entering the name of your local authority (council) in the box below. Tell us if you want to get something started in your area – or if there’s anything to add to our map!
What’s happening in Bedford?
We know residents in Bedford are interested in playing out, you can read more on the Bedford Playing Out Facebook page here.
Although the council don’t yet have a formal street play policy in place, you could use their street party procedure to trial a one-off play street, the ‘event on a highway’ guidance can be found on their website here.
If you want to lobby the council to get playing out going in Bedford, there are some tips on how to do this on our website here.
If you know of anything else happening with playing out in Bedford, or you need some help please get in touch with us!
