A Namgrass Makeover for Great Ponton CE Primary School
Last year we launched a nationwide competition for all UK schools named “Grass Out to Help Out”. The competition aimed to give schools an opportunity to nominate themselves to win artificial grass so that they could revamp their outdoor space ahead of the winter months, enabling children to enjoy more freedom while being encouraged to keep 2m apart.
And the winner was...
We recognised the strain in which educational facilities were facing during the colder months when children need to be socially distant while also letting off steam outside. As the seasons change more and more schools often have to resort to indoor or concrete playtime, with school playing fields becoming out of bounds as the wet weather comes to stay.
The winners of the Nationwide competition were the children of Great Ponton CE Primary School. This voluntary aided, small village primary school was needing some help to transform a tired, worn-out tarmac play area that was becoming unfit for purpose. With the help of Namgrass Approved Installers BF Lawns, 450m2 of Namgrass artificial grass was installed to create a multi-sports play surface.
Which artificial grass was used?
The best artificial grass was chosen for the job, which was Play-putt– a short pile, dense structured, extremely resilient synthetic turf which is designed for all sports and play areas.
Playing fields are renowned for getting extremely muddy during the winter months, and we know concrete outdoor areas aren’t always available. Namgrass guarantees no mud or puddles and is completely child-friendly, creating the perfect play surface. So, we were pleased that we could supply a safe solution and give something back to a deserving school.
But, the story didn’t end there…
We were thrilled to hear that the school loved their new play surface so much, that they have asked us to come back to install more artificial grass this winter!
