The Highland Council, in association with Play Highland, are offering an award of £1000 to the group, organisation or community that has done the most to promote play. The annual award is presented by the Play Improvement Group, which works to promote self-directed free play with daily access to the outdoors.
Applications are now closed for the Community Play Award 2017.
The 2016 award was won by Smithton Primary School Outdoor Explorers After School Club and the Green Leaf Garden. They developed different play zones at the school including a ‘mud kitchen’ and a den building area. The pupils and teachers involved were presented with their award by Cllr Miller at a meeting of the Education, Children and Adult Services Committee in June 2016.
