Welcome to the South Gloucestershire Holiday Playscheme

South Gloucestershire Playscheme, formerly known as the ‘Four Towns Play Association’ run free playschemes for children in the school holidays at venues across South Gloucestershire including Patchway, Little Stoke, Stoke Gifford, Bradley Stoke, Kingswood and Yate.

The playscheme offers free play sessions for children from 5 – 11 years of age who live or go to school in South Gloucestershire. We support local children to play and learn in the presence of others in a safe and child-friendly environment. This summer we are hosting four weeks of play sessions. We also run play sessions during the other school holidays – one week at Christmas, two weeks at Easter, and half term family fun days in February, October and Whitsun.

Creative Play

Our aim is to ensure children have fun and also to provide a break for parents.

The scheme provides a safe and fun environment for children to enjoy a range of activities including arts, crafts, sports and team games. 


“My son needed this safe space. I am so glad he is talking to the team about how he feels.”
