Finally, we have some lovely play equipment for the Uphill Junior School kindergarten children!
After much deliberation, we decided that a temporary playground made from old car tyres and wooden poles would be the best way forward in the short term as the wooden kindergarten classroom is also temporary and not yet in its final position on the school site. The children had never seen a proper playground before, but it didn’t take long for them to get the hang of things!
Money for the playground was raised by 1st Newport Brownies (seen below being shown photographs of the finished installation by their leader, Liddy), Duncan Laird, the Muddy Mayhem sponsored event held in October 2016, and by the community of Crosfields School. There are still funds in hand and these are being held until we are in a position to install a permanent playground. Duncan is looking forward to a chute being installed in his name…
If you would like to gift the gift of play, why not consider gifting a donation to The Uphill Trust?
