VIDEO: Bringing back community spirit with playground games in Bentley

Doncaster Council is aiming to revive street play with a scheme to bring back community spirit.

The latest scheme was in Bentley where children and families gathered to play traditional games including hop, skip and jump.

The council along with several partners is hoping the project will reduce anti-social behaviour and help people to become healthier and more active.

Cabinet member for health and social care, Coun Pat Knight, said: “Playing out in the street after school used to be an everyday experience for children for children who made friends, learnt new games and got to know their street and neighbourhood safely.”
