Are children playing outdoors enough?

Are children playing outdoors enough?

That's the question being posed at the next meeting of the Positive Action Group.

Play development officer, Chris Gregory, from the Isle of Man Children's Centre will be presenting some of the findings from the recent Children's Centre play survey which has been completed by over 3,000 children, young people and parents.

There is now growing concern children are being denied opportunities for unstructured outdoor play and that their health and development is being negatively affected.

Chris says the survey showed that children aren't getting out as they used to.

The PAG meeting this evening (Monday) takes place at the Manx Legion Hall on Market Hill in Douglas at 7.30pm. Admission is free.
