GripDeck have recently completed work with PepsiCo International, One Leicester and Shenton Primary School to improve the playground area for its 400 children.
GripDeck’s part was to provide a non slip decking area within the school playground. The decking area is on two levels and includes a non slip decking ramp to allow access for all.
Getting involved with One Leicester has been very satisfying for us. One Leicester aims to create safe places to play. In their manifesto they state “We will invest in parks, play spaces and streetscapes so that every child is within walking distance of a safe place to play. We want to reclaim the streets for our children, so that they are not confined to formal play spaces. Sport and culture are essential for the health and wellbeing of our children and we will continue to invest in improving these facilities in our city. We will take a more proactive role in identifying potential problems and providing suitable support.”
We would like to thank Greg Hilliard, Productivity Development Manager at PepsiCo International for getting intouch with GripDeck and giving us the opportunity to get involved.
