The TTT "Play" Group was initiated by Mike Jones, who has a background in creating natural children's play areas. The group is a mixture of parents and those already working as play leaders, Forest School Leaders or with young people, as well as adults who would like to invite more play in their lives. The group looks at a range of subjects related to play for all age groups, the importance of play and how it fits in with the Transition's aims. To read more about why Play is so important in Transition, please see Mike's article Planet Earth's Most Playful on the Transition Network's webpage.
The Aims of the Group are to encourage all members of the Totnes community to play together, particularly in the natural environment. In the future, we hope to create a map marking down all the areas in Totnes and District that are fun places to play, promote the creation of more play areas, with the long term aim of building an adventure playground in Totnes.
If you are interested in joining, please contact Mike on firstname.lastname@example.org. At the moment Mike is very busy with work so we need new people to bring time and ideas to the project.
In 2016, Adrian Porter initiated weekly Play time for Adults (and big kids) which ran from June through to August.
If you have any ideas to bring, please get in touch!
