Having spent many countless hours in the last 12 months watching my son play tag-rugby, tag stuck-in-the mud, tag-bullbog and some other quite interesting playground games, I am asking myself why do kids have all the fun and as grown ups we are stood passively on the sidelines? This also relates to exercise which for many of us takes the most common form of going jogging, trips to the gym, group aerobics or similar. Is there a way of getting exercise and having fun for free?
Well with long summer evenings now to be enjoyed, I invite you to a Grown Ups' Play Group. Come to the tennis court area at the Dartington Meadowbrook playground (adjacent to the main sports field and opposite to the Cider Press Shops), 7 - 9pm. Bring grippy footwear and loose clothing, something soft to drink and a willingness to run around. Also memories of games you used to play. Also over 8 year olds if you have 'grown up' little ones wanting to share some of their energy and teach us some of their stuff. Please email me if you're coming (see below) so I can let you know if torrential rain stops play.
