Fittleworth Recreation Ground, West Sussex

Hand Made Places have recently completed a large project which involved us installing a vast range of products at Fittleworth Recreation Ground in West Sussex.

The brand new area is being created with the intentions to provide the village with a community hub, meeting place and safe space to play.

This is with the aim to help tackle isolation.

The area itself had a multitude of equipment installed. The range followed a very natural theme and echoed that of a small farm including play sculptures such as the Horse and Cart, Pig on Gate, Hog, Tractor and Trailer and many more.

This is a great theme for this area of green space as it is adjacent to a brand new shopping facility – having this ‘farm fresh feel’ to the play area will enhance that message to customers who are shopping at this new establishment.

Amongst the natural elements such as the Oak Leaf Table and matching leaf seats, you can also find educational elements to the play area too!

The Educational Panels including the Weather, Date & Time, and many more. This means that children can not only enjoy the joys of playing at this brand new play space, but they can also enhance their learning too!

Something which here at Hand Made Places, we are very passionate about.

On top of all of this we also installed many physical play elements too. Encouraging children to engage in physical play such as trim trials, you can help them to gain their daily amount of recommended exercise.

The trim trail installed includes the:

These elements all offer a range of different activities which will improve muscle flexibility, bone strength, and also improve overall heart and lung health. As well as encouraging fun too! Great!

As well as encouraging physical play through the use of a trim trail, we have also installed not one, but two different play units! The Kempston Climbaround and Shireland Activity Centre are great for encouraging physical play amongst children. Children will have to climb, slide and swing their way through these fabulous pieces of playground equipment.
