Gratis Playground Refresh for Barlow Hall Primary School

30th August 2016by aperturemarketingukNews

The end of the summer can only mean one thing for thousands of kids across the country: it’s time to head back to school! Years of outdoor play had left Barlow Hall Primary School’s playground in dire need of a repaint, and teachers had planned to paint the area themselves with paintbrushes. That’s when Riggotts stepped in, and as a gesture of goodwill, offered Barlow Hall a complete playground refresh at no cost to the school.

The work was carried out by charge hand Tom Riggott and his second man John Stanfield-Warren. Tom began as a 16-year-old apprentice at Riggotts before working his way up to the position of charge hand at the age of 18. Since then, he’s been leading his own gang and exemplifies Riggotts’ dedication to quality work. Tom and John refreshed several of the school’s playground designs in a range of eye-catching colours, in addition to adding some new bespoke designs. Using different coloured one pack epoxy, our team laid over 900m of lining to create playground games that are both fun and educational. The new playground will be perfect for helping the children at Barlow Hall achieve their very best, even when they’re outdoors having fun.

Riggotts’ Work Improving School Playgrounds

13th March 2015by aperturemarketingukNews

In addition to our surface preparation, road marking and car park line marking work within various different industries, we also create bespoke school playground line marking. As well as providing a national road lining service with services including white and yellow lining, we create fun and educational graphic line markings in a wide array of colours. There’s been a lot of press over the recent years about getting kids more active and the negative effects of decreased physical education time so the school playground is the ideal place to make some proactive changes.

We use ideas from the schools themselves as well as our own experience to create fun, educational games on the surface of their playgrounds, from the traditional hopscotch which helps to build balance, spatial awareness and muscle strength to numbered grids that encourage math skills and can be used in a variety of different ways. Outdoor physical play can also play an important part in making subjects more interesting and engaging for students. For example, we can create geographical maps of Great Britain and compasses to help spark a renewed interest in geography.

Other options such as mazes and scaled-down roadways encourage imagination, road safety awareness and teamwork. Our miniature version of road markings and road linings are clear and realistic, much like our real-life road markings created by our specialist road marking team. If your school playground has pre-existing line markings but you want a complete overhaul, Riggotts can provide a line removal service and surface preparation before applying your brand new school playground line marking.

If you have something completely unique in mind, we can work with your ideas and offer advice to create completely bespoke, vibrantly coloured and highly durable designs. As line marking contractors, we can help make your school’s playground fun and educational area without the need for maintenance or any extra equipment.
