Start on your street

Once you have permission, you’ll need to publicise the times and dates of your sessions to everyone on the street and invite them to join in. Use these template posters and flyers or make your own. Try to make everyone feel included, be clear about the rules around car access and ensure parents understand they are responsible for their own children.

It’s a good idea to think through any potential problems or issues beforehand by doing a simple risk assessment. You also need to have the correct ‘road closed’ signs and barriers. If you are in Bristol, we can lend you some. Elsewhere, your council may provide them or you can buy a kit box from us.

You can read more about this stage in the Playing Out manual.  If you have any questions, or would like to talk at any stage of the process, please do give the Playing Out team a call on 0117 953 7167.
