We have really enjoyed our partnership working this year with The Livity School, Michael Tippett School and Cambridge House and would like to say a special thank you to all our funders : Aiming High lambeth, Lambeth Middle Years and Help A London Child.

Activities That took place at Brockwell Lido included : Drama , Acrobatics, BMX Biking, Wheels for Well Being, Capoeira , Arts & Crafts , Football, Circus skills, Street Dance, Cookery, Treasure Hunts and trips out to Dulwich Park, Alice in the Walled Garden in Brockwell Park, Triangle Adventure Playground, Oasis Adventure Playground.


Children were given a questionnaire at the end of the playscheme about the favourite bits of the playscheme, here are some of their comments:

 “Because we play in the morning”

“Because there are a lot of activities and variations of them”

“BMX was the best day ever in Whippersnappers”

“I like making Friends”

“I can sing Adele”

“Because the people here are nice”

“I like all the activities”

“It has a good choice of games”

“I made loads of friends”

“Because it is fun and I liked what activities I did, I really enjoyed the boating”

We also had a fantastic turnout from young volunteers – 17 young people between the ages of 12 and 18 volunteered and had a great time! Here are some of their feedback of their experience:


“I have really loved the opportunity that I have been given as I have never taken part in a play scheme. I have also felt like I have learnt a great deal from the children, as they have from me”

“Everyone has worked as a team and I have really enjoyed working with the children”

“I have met a lot of new people but the opportunity to work with the children has been the best part. Especially helping them with their idea/vision coming true through Art”

“It was good because I learned a lot from the children. Also I learnt more importantly the value of time”

“We were in a good staff group and the kids were generally well behaved”
