Alison Ferguson has said that the children benefit as they play outside for a short time each week. This improves physical health along with mental health as the children will be more active and social than by staying indoors.

This also helps the community as neighbours are able to meet and make new friends as well as helping the elderly in the street who may become isolated and afraid at venturing out during peak traffic times.
