Wanstead Library helps families have a kickabout in the park


Families with children are invited to take advantage of Wanstead Library’s participation in the Alive and Kicking Football Library Network.

“We loan footballs to local families with children (aimed at under-16s). The loan is free and all we ask is that the ball is returned! The footballs were supplied by Alive and Kicking, the world’s only not-for-profit ball manufacturer,” said a spokesperson.

There are over 250 football libraries across the UK, with the aim to increase the use of local playgrounds and parks.
