Why did you want to develop your playground?
We’re more than just a pub at The Jolly Farmers, we’re also a deli and a farm shop, a café and a lounge. We’ve been attracting more and more families and we wanted to provide the children with a fun space for them to play in whilst their parents relax or shop. We wanted to include a variety of activities so that it would be the parents having to drag the children away!
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
A lot of other providers we looked at weren’t sure how to develop a playground for a pub garden but Playforce was excited by the challenge. They worked with us to create a playground that would be suitable for a range of ages and abilities but also sit nicely with the pub surroundings, next to our kitchen garden and fruit trees. It needed to fit with the British pub theme but still be vibrant and exciting.
