Play in North Herts

The Active Communities Team support a range of play opportunities across the District.

Family Festivals of Fun

Taking place during the Easter and summer holidays, Family Festivals of Fun offer free to access sports, art and craft and play activities. The events are held in local parks.

Burns Road Hangout

The Burns Road Hangout is a drop in Youth Club for children aged between 8 years and 13 years, running from Coombes Community Centre. Sessions run term times 4-5:30pm every Friday.

The Hangout provides a safe and fun place for the young people to communicate with each other and adults. They have a sense of ownership over the club and belonging, and understand that everything has to have rules. The young people benefit by being able to try new experiences with their friends or individually, and learn about each other.

A variety of activities happen at the club including cookery, sport, arts and crafts, BBQ’s, waterslides to name a few. It is also a place where the young people can complete their school homework or just chat to friends in a safe and fun environment.
