One parent told us…

It is a fantastic club for the children of Avonmouth, all of whom seem to enjoy much. The variety and choice of activities they have is wonderful too (so no bored children!) It is an invaluable amenity for our children.

The project is managed by Avonmouth Community Centre and all members of the Play Team have completed Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (previously known as CRB checks.) Volunteers also provide valuable support to the project, and it is our policy that all volunteers also should be DBS (enhanced) checked.
