CHILDREN in Woodbury will no longer be lost for things to do following the launch of a council scheme aimed at helping youngsters to get active.The East Devon District Council project is promoting the positive use of play spaces in Woodbury for the benefit of youngsters.Local volunteers are needed to help run the project, and will be supported by mobile play workers Jane Sharp and Polly Mercer, who will help train volunteers and set up and equip fun activities for seven to 15-year-olds.Jane will specialise in sports and outdoor activities, while Polly will lead arts and performance activities.Up to three volunteers, aged 16 or over, will receive free training, get hands-on experience of working in the play environment, and will receive a certificate recognising their achievement, which could lead on to a career in play leadership.The project will receive funding from the Big Lottery Children's Play Programme Fund, for the next two years.Jane and Polly would like to hear from anyone who is interested in getting involved in the project. They can be contacted at East Devon District Council on (01395) 571556.
