A community playgroup for youngsters has been nominated in a national competition that encourages children to get outside to play.

Beaupres Under 5’s centre in Outwell has been nominated in a Play More campaign.

The competition works by the public nominating a nursery who go above and beyond to get children outside and playing.

The 15 most deserving nurseries will then receive one of the following prizes; a £500 grant, a toy shed or a mural.

A spokesman for Beaupre said: “Sedentary children are a massive problem; studies have found that children spend as little as five hours outside each week, as opposed to 45.5 hours in front of a television.
