PATH - Working Together for Play.

Morgan Stanley Healthy Cities

Healthy Cities London is a project funded by Morgan Stanley, PATH started work in April 2015, we are really pleased to have been awarded another years funding and will be playing around Poplar until March 2019.

All the partners and Morgan Stanley were pleased to win the Business in the Community award for Connecting Places

We have delivered outdoor play sessions and created three new play spaces managed by Poplar Harca

Thanks to everyone involved in sharing ideas for play spaces, we currently run our weekly outdoor session on a Friday in the Orchard play space on Lincoln estate. The nest swing, trampoline and bench are still well used all week. Thanks to additional funding from Tower Hill Trust improved lighting and new bench in the old play area mean Mums feel safer and stay out more often. .

Funding was spent on playful resources, giant outdoor games like bowling, Jenga and 4 in a row as well as tennis bats and balls which have been used at play sessions and events in June, July and August.

We would love to see more people out playing in spaces locally and can support this by loaning play resources and training. In September 2018 PATH will be running more Play Champion training to build play based skills and knowledge.
