Chard School Install a Playlawn Playground

Chard School in Chard, Somerset has recently completed the installation of a brand new Playlawn.

Mrs Stotesbury, the Headmaster's wife, said 'We are absolutely thrilled with our Playlawn. It has transformed the outside play area for the younger children, who love running and bouncing around on the surface. I'm very happy to be able to show visitors and parents such a safe and fun playground.'

The DIY kit was delivered to the school in the school holidays. Mrs Stotesbury, with the help of one of the school's grounds staff, installed the kit herself and the Playlawn was ready and waiting for the children on their return in the Autumn term.

New All Weather Pitch for Woodheys Primary School

Laura Daniels, Head Teacher at Woodheys Primary School in Sale, Cheshire is thrilled with the schools new All Weather Pitch.

The 24m x 30m pitch provided by Sportslawn Ltd has a third generation, sand and rubber filled surface. The children are playing sports with new confidence and there are less additions to the school accident book!

The school enlisted Chris Bullock, a Football Association accredited coach, to help choose the correct size and surface. Mr Bullock who uses the pitch for out of school coaching says the surface is 'Fantastic!' The Extended Schools Initiative helped with the funding.

Mrs Daniels has said 'The pitch is wonderful, and great value. Sportslawn gave us a very competitive price compared with the other companies that quoted.'

The pitch was finished with Sportslawn Kickboards manufactured from tough recycled plastic. Mrs Daniels commented 'We have a small vandal problem at the school and one surprising benefit is the ease with which we are able to remove grafitti from the fence, all that was needed was a cloth and some white spirits.'
