Play Schemes

The Town Council are commited to providing free play and sports sessions in the school holidays for local children.

We currently run play sessions with the Milton Keynes Play Association (MKPA) and sports sessions with MK Dons in the Easter and Summer holidays. In 2020 the Council extended these services to run in the February Half Term as well.

Outdoor play sessions are held at Wolverton Road Recreation Ground in Stony Stratford, Spider Park, Fullers Slade and (new for 2022) Caterpillar Park, Galley Hill. At each play session MKPA provide a large inflatable, engaging craft activities and different fun sports. These are open access sessions for all from pre-school age up to teenagers.

The sports sessions with MK Dons are kindly hosted by Stony Stratford Football Club and offer a variety of outdoor sports such as football, tag rugby and kwik cricket. Indoor sports sessions have also been held in the winter months.    

Dates for the Easter and summer holiday play sessions will be available in the events calendar on our website and Facebook page nearer the time.
