Playing Out are a community of local parents who wanted their children to have space to play, freedom to ride bikes, to skip and to get to know their neighbours, just as we did when we were young, without the worry of cars whizzing down the street.
In the summer Playing Out helped several streets in the area organise a traffic free events which allowed the children to play freely in the streets without strong parental supervision.
I took the boys to a couple and they had a wild time. Zooming around on their bikes, writing on the road with coloured chalk, playing games. Such fun.
If you watch the above video, you will see my two boys (towards the end of the video), on their little red & yellow bikes.
Watching this, I am thinking of getting our street closed for the afternoon next summer!
