Inner City School Invests in Green Space for Children

Alston Primary School in Birmingham has invested in a Sportslawn pitch for its 700 pupils.

The school only had tarmac playgrounds for the children, many of whom have little access to green areas at home .

The pitch was installed in three days by Sportslawn, directly on top of the existing tarmac surface. The sand and rubber filled soccer carpet, loose laid on the Sportbase panels has resulted in a professional standard playing surface that the children adore. They are now able to jump for the ball and slide tackle with complete confidence.

Paul Sharrock, the Deputy Head Teacher initiated the project and worked tirelessly raising money for this facility. ' The children are so pleased with the pitch, ' he says 'I know it's going to make a huge difference to them and I'm proud to have been able to make such a positive change to the school'.
The school were very impressed with the speed and efficiency with which the pitch was installed. The competative prices offered by Sportslawn provided a solution to the problem of continual use of tarmac for sports and play.

New All Weather Pitch for Grovelands Community School

Grovelands Community Primary School in Hailsham, East Sussex, are the proud owners of a brand new all weather pitch.
Sportslawn Ltd installed the 18m x 40m pitch, despite outrageous weather conditions, during the winter months.
The school opted for Sportslawn because of the competative price and the lack of disruption during installation, some of which took place during term time.The school chose the popular '3rd Generation' surface: a 50 mm carpet which is sand and rubber filled. This has resulted in a comfortable and safe surface that can be used all year round.
The school had great problems in the winter- their playing fields regularly becoming water logged and leaving the tarmac playground as the only option for play time and sports lessons.
The children are extremely pleased with their new sports facility and are enjoying being able to slide tackle with abandon and are falling over with smiles on their faces.
