Rossington council in Doncaster, employed the services of Playground Surfaces (GLS) this week to surface a new playground adjacent to their Sports Centre.  There had been some consideration that Wet Pour would be used and GLS are always happy to install any of the robust surfaces we offer.  


However, in the end the  designers decided that Notts Sport ChildsPlay would be the surface of choice.


Return from Glasgow

Playground Surfaces have returned from Glasgow again this week after a long contract involving another pitch and a very large childrens playground.  The site was located in the once notorious Gorbals area of Glasgow.

The pitch was another Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and the council had specified that it should be in Notts Sport Childsplay 1150.  They opted for no lines on this kick about area and the colour off the pitch and playground is Grass Green.

Sheffield - Kick About Area

This week sees the playground surfaces teams return to Sheffield to install Notts Sport on another new kick about area.


Return to Glasgow.......

Next week Playground Surfaces (GLS) have won more work in Glasgow working for a large, main contractor on a redevelopment site in the Gorbals.

The site was apparently notorious in days gone by, but has undergone an improvement programme and three blocks of flats have just been developed as part of that scheme.  As part of this social housing development, a large playground and medium sized kick about pitch (MUGA) has been installed.

Glasgow City Council - 2 Kick About Pitches

The single colour, grass green kick about pitches were completed on Friday by Playground Surfaces (GLS).
One of the pitches on Macbeth Street was very close to Celtic F.C. football club.  This was the larger of the two pitches measuring approximately 17x25m.  The site was located on a former park, which had become somewhat run down.  The pitch was a welcome addition to the area the residents happily told us and everyone seemed grateful.
