One lucky school or nursery in England and Wales will receive a free playground worth £10,000 courtesy of the UK’s leading playground company, Playforce.
To enter the competition schools and nurseries have been invited to share what a new outdoor space would mean to them, in either a video or a picture. Playforce will be posting the best entries online and announcing the winner during the first week in November. With installation already planned for February/March this means that the winning school children could be playing on their new playground in time for Easter 2022.
Playforce Marketing Manager Claire Thew said:
“We’re passionate about getting children outdoors, active, learning and playing. But we understand that the pandemic has taken its toll – not least on funding and available resources for outdoor education. When we spoke to teachers in our recent focus groups they told us that, since everyone has returned to school, outdoor play and learning has become more important than ever. So, fuelled with this insight we decided to do something about it and help schools get children playing and learning outdoors again.
“As part of the competition prize Playforce will provide a free consultation, site survey and design for the winning school or setting and work with them to agree the final design. We will also deliver and oversee the installation. If the winning school or setting wants to add to this budget they’re welcome to but for one lucky winner the first £10,000 is on us!“
