A bit about this project

We love Fawkham’s small but perfectly formed village school and couldn’t wait to create a new space for their children to play in. Their PTA had raised money so that their children could make use of an outdoor area that had been neglected over many years and had become completely overgrown and inaccessible. The parents stepped in and helped to clear it, which meant we could get underway with creating a very special play area sooner.

We continued their work by preparing and installing a safe and future-proofed play surface, with artificial grass on top, before installing a structure for climbing and a nest swing for the daring, or for the more reserved children to enjoy at their own pace.

We enjoyed the logistical challenge of installing everything on this sloped piece of ground, so that it was both safe, practical and fun to play on.

Our favourite part of any project, the grand opening of the new play area at Fawkham, allowed us to see the children having a great time testing out the equipment and sharing the experience with year groups from EYFS to Key Stage 2. A win all round!

Testimonials

We had ideas of what the play area would look like but Everyday Play went beyond our expectations. They shared a detailed visual drawing of the fully bespoke area with us and after a couple of alterations, it was agreed and the design came to life.

Communication was one of their priorities and it was great to see such a qualified and enthusiastic team.

They were quick to overcome any issues related to working on such a large site. Lewis and all the team at Everyday Play involved us at all stages, ensuring we were happy with each phase prior to works moving forward.

It has been a pleasure to work with such a lovely company and I would highly recommend them.

We are extremely pleased with the three play areas and miniature adventure golf course that Everyday Play designed and installed which caters for families of all ages.

The whole team, from the Director level to the installers were very professional in the way the work was carried out from start to finish. We established a terrific relationship with Everyday Play, and they listened and discussed any issues or concerns we had during the works period.

They strived to keep disturbance to the public to a minimum including working adaptive hours to suit our needs.

We would have no hesitation in recommending, or using this company again and would like to thank the whole team at Everyday Play.

At Sussex Road School we strive to develop bespoke outdoor environments on a fairly small site. The Everyday Play team have been working closely with us, using their knowledge and skills to safely interpret our somewhat fanciful suggestions, and create imaginative solutions in keeping with the ethos of the school.

It is a pleasure to work alongside Luke and all the members of the Everyday Play team. We look forward to their continued support on future projects, including those currently in the design phase.

I have worked with Luke and his team at Everyday Play on many occasions. He is highly professional, hard working and will always run the extra mile to ensure that his work is carried out to the highest standard. He is keen to ensure that we are happy with progress and will work with us to change and adapt as necessary.

Everyday Play employees are respectful and easy to trust to be on the school site. They understand our risk assessments and are always very keen to ensure that they comply with our wishes. DBS information is provided prior to arrival.

After care is an important part of what Everyday Play provide and they are very willing to return to complete any inspection remedial work as equipment ages. This helps keep equipment in good working order for many years.

I would not hesitate to recommend Everyday Play and I will certainly use this company again both for new installations and for remedial work.
