Letchworth is host to a scheme that encourages residents young and old to be more active outdoors.

Jackmans ParkPlay launched ParkPlay at the weekend, designed to offer people of all ages two hours of free, fun and games.

Playleaders are helping to facilitate the fun with various bats and balls, skipping ropes and frisbees - so visitors can play traditional games to team sports.

ParkPlay founder Rick Jenner said: "After a stressful, busy week, lots of people enjoy mucking about playing and hanging out with their friends and neighbours at ParkPlay.

Through working with Herts County Council and Herts Sport and Physical Activity Partnership, ParkPlay comes to the Jackmans in a scheme delivered by Active in the Community.

Organisers say activities are relaxed enough to attract the shy and less confident, but structured enough to reassure, adding that there's minimal rules and competitiveness, so participants of every age, stage, ability and confidence-level can join in.

Councillor Steve Jarvis added: "A lot of us, whatever our age, would probably benefit from some light exercise outdoors on a Saturday morning – so this is your perfect opportunity.

"There's no charge and you'll meet like-minded people from your local area." 

The sessions take place every Saturday morning, 10am-12pm, at Jackmans Creamery, Radburn Way, Letchworth
