Worthing Playday 2013

Worthing Playday 2013

The 7th August 2013 was Playday. Playday is the national day for play in the UK, and as well as a celebration of children's right to play, Playday is a campaign that highlights the importance of play in children's lives. Every year, across the UK all sorts of organisations host Playday celebration events. I first encountered Playday the summer after Harry was born, when I met a group of friends at Broadwater Green in Worthing to see what was going on. Our babies were too small to appreciate it, but I remember thinking that it would be wonderful to go along when they were older.

We didn't make it for the next few years, but this year I was much more aware of the campaign, and with two children that are now the perfect ages I took us along. Worthing really does make a good effort. There were lots of stalls with friendly people to chat to, including some of the staff from Harry's old nursery and some ladies that I have chatted to recently on Twitter under my alter ego @worthingmums.
