Booking is essential, preferably using your CABs account.  The meals are for you as parent(s) / carer(s) as well as for the children.

Ready to launch!

Please ensure that your child has sunhat and has applied suncream (or a raincoat if the weather is likely to be wet.)

Once you arrive, please go to our registration table to book and collect a wristband for each family member who would like a meal: those with allergies will wear a red wristband.  We will need the wristbands returned before you leave, please.

Location:  Glevum Open Space, Glevum Way, Abbeydale, Gloucester, GL4 4BL

There are safe walking and cycling routes and bike/scooter racks inside the play park.  The No 2 bus runs along Heron Way (use the stop by Morrisons and walk down to the open space).  If arriving by car, there is some parking at Morrisons or the Abbeydale Community Centre car park.

Meals will be served during the middle of the session from the Eatwell Wagon which will be parked in the car park near Glevum Open Space and will be well signposted; you can bring your meals from there to the Open Space where there are a few benches and also tarpaulins to sit on. There are pavements leading from the car park to the Open Space where the activities will be run.  There will be an Abbey Church Neighbourhood Chaplains/HAF banner and an Information Table staffed by our volunteers near the entrance to the Open Space as well as some gazebos. It would be good if you bring your own waterbottle, although we will bring some water in camping containers and cups.

Questions?   Abbey Church Neighbourhood Chaplains and other volunteers from Abbey Church CIO will be running the session in partnership with the Gloucester city HAF team.  For more information, please contact Church Administrator, Abby Brook:

Food Provision Information

The Food is being planned and delivered by the Eatwell Wagon caterers and will be tasty and meet the DfE nutritional standards: more details of meals will be available on our website if we receive them in advance.

If you feel your child(ren)’s dietary requirements will not be met by our provision please visit


for more information on how you can access suitable and nutritional food for your children.

Information about Accessibility for SEND families

Glevum Open Space is accessible – there are no steps – and there are toilets (including disabled toilets and baby change) in the Abbeydale Community Centre by the park and a short distance away at Morrisons where parents may take children.

For children with SEND who feel the need for some peace and quiet, we have a sensory tent that we will erect under a gazebo.

We would welcome enquiries from families whose children have particular needs so that we can reassure you about facilities available.
