On to a more cheerful visit last Thursday, to the Reidvale Adventure Playground Association. This provides a great facility not just for children, but has a drop in for teenagers as well. It takes pupils from SEN schools during the day, hosts football coaching, and a wide range of other activities. It has various funding, but also relies on the dedication and commitment of many local volunteers to staff the programmes RAPA run.

It probably says a lot that when I arrived (a bit early!) for my meeting with the manager there was a queue of boys and girls of various ages waiting to get in. I only wish there could be similar projects right across my ward - and across the city.
