Feedback and Certificate

Providers / Artists

Mid Sussex District Council would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the online providers for the Play Days at Home Summer programme.

  • They have put in considerable hours filming and editing, and for many gained new skills in doing this 😊
  • They have helped and supported the programme with enthusiasm and commitment 😊
  • They have shown creativity and imagination to make the programme fun and engaging 😊
  • They have wanted to be able to entertain young people in Mid Sussex during the 6-week summer holidays when there was little opportunity of being out in the MSDC parks at the usual events
