Context

Proludic supplied its Origin range of natural play equipment for an adventure playground in Bestwood Country Park, Nottinghamshire.

Product supplied

The Origin equipment is made from robinia wood and is perfect for rural locations, being natural and sympathetic to its surroundings yet still exciting and challenging for children.

The Origin range is also eco-friendly and PEFC accredited to ensure all the wood used is sourced from eco-managed forests and any wood used is replaced to ensure sustainability.

The playground was initially built for Andy Maycock in 2002, a 16-year-old boy who was local to the area and died following a tragic road accident. However, in recent times the play area had fallen into disrepair and drastically needed revamping.

Andy’s mum Sue Maycock has campaigned tirelessly for funds with the support of the Friends of Bestwood County Park and the local community. The revamped park cost £65,000 with £20,000 being raised through the work of Sue, the Friends of Group and other community members. This is a great achievement and a fitting tribute to her son who loved the park as a boy. Andy was also a keen member of the air cadets so some features in the play area reflect this with the addition of an aeroplane.

Sue Maycock commented:

“It’s amazing, it really is. There’s a wooden aeroplane that children can climb and play. That was what Andrew was about; from six years old he was going to fly his aeroplane. It’s got slides, a zip wire, lots of climbing poles. There’s three different sets of swings. There’s a seesaw. The children are going to absolutely love it. It was lovely when we first did it. This time, it’s so nice and different. There’s more there.“
