A 16 tonne sand pit, giant inflatables, a waterslide and more are all being set up at West Glebe Park in Corby next week for youngster to enjoy for free as the borough celebrates National Play Day.

On Wednesday, August 5, Corby will be joining the country to join in on National Play Day; a day where thousands of children and their families get out to play at hundreds of community events across the UK.

As well as a celebration of children’s right to play, Play Day is a campaign that highlights the importance of play in children’s lives.

Here in Corby, we are offering a day of fun including a giant sand pit and inflatables, a water slide, entertainment from a clown, Corby Radio, face painters and more! Best of all, it’s all absolutely free!

This year’s event is supported by the Northamptonshire Community Foundation, Friends of West Glebe Park, RBW and Corby Council.

Corby Council lead member for community Cllr John McGhee said: “Play is an important part of our children’s development, health and wellbeing and general childhood enjoyment, so we are very pleased to be supporting the national Play Day for yet another year.

“West Glebe Park is going to be transformed into one huge fun activity area and everything is free to have a go on.

“This is the perfect chance to get the kids out in the fresh air during their school holidays and get them simply enjoying a full day of fun play.”
