Animal Footprints for National Play Day – join us this Thursday!


The weather is not on our side for Wednesday, and as heavy rain and chalk paint don’t mix well then we’ll now be holding this event on Thursday instead. Same time and place: 10am, outside Granton School, hopefully with the sun shining! See you there.


On Wednesday it’s National Play Day, a celebration of children’s right to play and we’d love if you could come and help us to celebrate playing outdoors and being active and healthy in Streatham Vale.

We’re going to be getting our hands dirty by creating a trail of colourful animal footprints with temporary chalk spray paint to show the paths that are used by children, parents (and maybe some other big creatures!) to cross Streatham Vale Road, go past the school and into Streatham Vale Park – the perfect place to play outside!


Here’s a map of where we’ll be painting:

When we’ve finished our trail we’ll enjoy being in the park for a bit and sit down to have a drink and a snack.

The meeting place is outside Granton Primary School at the Granton Road entrance at 10am this Wednesday 6th August.

Please wear old clothes (the chalk paint does come out but for messier types it can be hard not to cover yourself in it) and bring water and sunscreen as we’ll be outside for a couple of hours.

We’ll also be able to tell you all about the development of our design ideas for the local streets, so do come along and ask us about it.

See you there!
