We are opening up our grounds to local SEND families to provide fun outdoor activities to help increase physical activity and support mental wellbeing during lockdown. Local families with a child or young person with a learning or physical disability can get active and enjoy the outdoors in one of our safe and zoned off play spaces on the outfield at Arundel Castle Cricket Ground, in a way that complies with the latest Covid-19 Government advice.
We know how important it is to be active for good physical and mental health and we understand that for many families with a child or young person with a disability, the lockdown can make them feel cut off and isolated. Through our lockdown SEND activities we hope to provide families with a safe place in which to get active outdoors and enjoy valuable family time in a beautiful countryside setting.
There are two activities to choose from:
- Play Zones – families can book a zoned-off, safe, private space to play as a family at our beautiful Arundel Castle Cricket ground. We provide various sports equipment or families can bring their own and do whatever they choose within their own zone.
- Multi-Sports – families can book a place or a group on a coach led multi-sports activity session with a qualified and DBS checked coach at Arundel Castle Cricket Ground. Activities are for small groups of up to 4 people – all abilities are welcome. Equipment will not be shared, and 2m social distancing will be followed at all times.
Both activities are available to book from 10th February – 31st March 2021
Times available: Wednesdays and Sundays at 10-11am and 11.30-12.30pm
During February half term week (15th – 19th February) there will be additional sessions.
Times available during half term: Monday – Friday at 10.30-12pm and 1-2.30pm
If you would like to book a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org
