Talk about going back to school with a fanfare! We cannot tell you how excited we are about what’s coming up next month… We’re planning our biggest competition yet and we wanted to give you a sneak peak of what’s to come.
We don’t have to tell you that, here at Playforce, we’re passionate about getting children outdoors, active, learning and playing. But we understand that the pandemic has taken its toll and not least on funding and available resources for outdoor education. And that’s a particular shame when the word from teachers is that it’s more important (and popular) than ever. If you’d like to read more about this you can see our reports on two focus groups we ran, earlier this year, with teachers across the country. We asked ‘what impact has COVID-19 had on our children’ and ‘has the lack of outdoor play and learning due to COVID-19 spread beyond schools’.
So… fuelled with this insight we decided to do something about it and help schools get children playing and learning outdoors again.
How would you like to win a playground? Yes, you heard us right… Next month we’ll be launching our biggest and most exciting competition yet. We’ll release full details nearer the time but for now… the competition will be open to schools and nurseries in England and Wales… and the RRP price of the completed playground will be £10,000, to be installed in February/March 2022. That’s right, by Easter next year your children could be enjoying a brand new, free playground designed and produced by the UK’s leading playground company.
We’ll be sending details out on social media, email and publishing them on our website. To make sure you don’t miss out follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and check back here on our news page over the next few days!
