Wonderful Easter Playscheme 2021

We were able to provide 20 play scheme places per day for children most affected by Covid over the Easter holidays. We opened for 9 days and ran afternoon sessions offering children healthy snacks and fun activities including Easter art & craft, sports and games, an Easter Egg Hunt, activities on the farm and trips out to Moseley Bog.

All the children were referred by our local schools and they really enjoyed themselves. The scheme was fully funded by ‘The Grimmitt Trust’ who have supported our play schemes previously and kindly donated enough funding to enable everything to be free of charge for parents. We were also donated Easter Eggs from the YMCA that were well received!

Message from The Chief Executive

New coronavirus restrictions for Birmingham

New coronavirus restrictions have been announced for Birmingham residents as a result of the government’s new three-tier system. These come into effect TOMORROW: Wednesday, 14 October.
The city has been placed in the ‘alert level 2’ due to infection rates above 100 per 100,000 people. This means households will not be able to meet indoors (except with support bubbles) – including indoor hospitality, leisure and retail. This is in addition to the national ‘rule of six’ and the local ban on meeting other households in private homes – though the rule of six will now apply to private gardens.
