12pm – 3pm, the green space between Tranent Library and Lindores Drive.

It might be cold but it’s still great to get together to play outside and get some fresh air during the holidays. This session is offered by East Lothian Play Association and PlayCan – our joint project for inclusive outdoor play. Team PlayCan will be at each of the sessions to provide a little extra support, a warm welcome and inclusive play ideas.

Public toilets are available on Lindores Drive and at The Fraser Centre. We will provide some snacks and you are welcome to bring food.


Tranent is well served by local buses. The green space where we will be is a 10 minute walk from a bus stop. Long stay parking is available at Foresters Park, a few minute’s walk away. Please help keep children safe and park responsibly.

Weather Aware:

These are outdoor sessions. We’ll have some spare gloves, hats, coats and socks if you lose yours on the way! There will also be some hot drinks and snacks to keep tummies warm.
ELPA’s motto is to keep playing whatever the weather. Wrap up warm and try to wear waterproofs if it looks like rain or snow. We have some temporary shelters.
