The Ranch – Our Place

By Resident Saraya Brittan, age 10. 

I have been going to the Ranch every Tuesday for two years. I love it because it is a place where children can be themselves and can meet new people. When you arrive, you will find a massive climbing frame, a football pitch, a bike track and even a pool table! One of the most wonderful things about the Ranch is that it is totally free. This matters because it means that it is available for all children. Amazingly, there is also a zip wire! Whizzing down the zip wire I have goose-bumps of joy and feel excited and free!

My favourite thing to do is the Art Room. I am always discovering something different. For example, you can make pictures on canvases or create your own games using shoe boxes. You might like to try football tournaments, bike races or basketball. On special occasions The Ranch holds parties. For example, I loved their Halloween party. The Ranch is special because children can learn new skills, try new experiences and just have fun!

I would highly recommend the Ranch to anyone. You could take some friends along, or just turn up and meet new friends while you’re there!
