Awards for Play 2013

Nancy Ovens Awards took place at award winning Broxburn Family Centre on Saturday 7th September were we celebrated 10 years of the awards with a great turn out of old friends and new from the play world.

Grant Stott from Forth 1 was fantastic and presented the awards to our much deserved winners .Teresa Casey gave  us a ‘looking back ten years on play ’ and  was excellent in making us all realise we have come along way with particular reference with article 31 being now in place at the UN for children’s right to play.

A great day was had by all.
