Brightening Up The Playground At Welburn Hall
Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire
Hazel Smith, Headteacher at Welburn Hall Community School gave us a call. The tarmac playground at her school had been resurfaced and she was keen for our ideas on how it could be brightened up.
Following a site visit and some initial designs a budget was agreed and we installed the graphics in just three days during April 2016. The markings were installed on recently replaced tarmac play area and included a 1-25 Crocodile, a Rocket Hopscotch and a What’s the Time Mr Wolf game.
We also provided an A-Z Snake from a classroom door to the playground as well as a Sunﬂower Hopscotch and Rainbow in the sensory garden area.
During the installation the children were excited and enthralled with the new additions to their playground areas. They were a polite, happy group of children who provided our workmen with a continuous supply of tea and cakes throughout the job.
At ﬁrst4playgrounds we would like to say a big thank you to all of them especially the boy who provided the meringue cakes! The school were so pleased with their new playground markings the headteacher sent us the following reference:
“Many thanks for the professional, efficient and speedy way that you and your team carried out the playground markings here at Welburn Hall School. The pupils are really pleased with the end result and could not wait to play on them. Every time I come past the playground all of the games are in use and the children are having great fun.
Thank you for taking the time to explain to our very interested pupils what you were doing and how it would work. For our Class 3 who are looking at Materials Changing in Science it was a brilliant learning opportunity! The work was carried out to a high standard by pleasant and affable workmen, I would not hesitate to recommend your company to colleagues or to invite you back to Welburn Hall to create more play opportunities. Thank you again.”
The children have been so pleased with markings. I looked on the CCTV camera and could see them playing on them all day. Thank you very much.
We are very happy with the service we received from first4playgrounds, from the first point of contact through to the Alphabet Snail being installed and Invoice being received the communication was prompt and friendly. Highly Recommended!
We are extremely pleased with the service and outcome! The children were amazed to see your colourful designs and it has really breathed a new lease of life into a ‘tired’ playground.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the work that has been completed at Stakeford Primary School. The customer service we have received has been outstanding from start to finish and the work has been done to a really high standard. The children love the new markings. We will certainly be using your company again, many thanks.
The school logo is very impressive and is a really good visual point for all parents, children and visitors that come into the school.
Thanks for the markings – they look great! We look forward to using your services again in the future.
first4playgrounds were absolutely fantastic. They couldn’t have been any more professional in all aspects of their work, they go straight to the top of our recommended contractors list.
The work was carried out to a high standard by pleasant and affable workmen. I would not hesitate to recommend first4playgrounds to schools and colleges. Thank you.
Thank you very much. The service you provided was excellent. You were very adaptable to the timings of our school day and our needs. What is excellent is that the markings were tailored to suit our needs. We adapted the brochure ideas and nothing was a problem. I can’t wait for phase two to begin. Thank you for a prompt service.
