Around 350 Thamesmead residents attended Trust Thamesmead’s National Play Day event in Manorway Green off Manor Close in Thamesmead yesterday, Thursday 1 August and with everything from inflatables, cups and saucers ride, a train and swings, the event certainly lived-up to its name!

Local service providers including Trust Thamesmead, Fair Finance, Bexley Family Information Service, Bexley Family Learning, Bexley Women’s Aid, Greenwich and Bexley Special Care Dental Service, Bexley Waste & Recycling, Greenwich School of Management, London Wildlife Trust and Bexley Community Safety Partnership were also on-hand to engage with residents.

Trust Thamesmead’s Community Development Officer, Linda Delieu who led the event said: “It was fantastic to be able to offer a fun day for residents whilst giving them access to information and advice on an informal basis, ranging from financial matters and home safety to how they can find a NHS dentist, which will enable them to make life choices that can only be of benefit to them and their family.”
