Redrow Thames Valley, which is currently building at Badbury Park, on Homington Avenue, delivered the new outdoor equipment for children at Badbury Park Primary School to enjoy during their lunchtimes.

The equipment includes additional outdoor seating, as well as a kitchen hut for the children to learn about food and hygiene.

As they are committed to a net zero future, the new equipment has been handmade from recyclable wood by the Redrow team.

Sarah Boyce, Sales Director for Redrow Thames Valley, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting pupils at Badbury Park Primary School with brand-new playground equipment.

“The benefits of outdoor play are endless, particularly as it encourages creativity, which is integral to a child’s education, and helps to develop imagination too. Here at Redrow, we are always keen to support anything which will inspire the next generation of future architects, housebuilders and designers to develop – especially when it’s something as fun as playground equipment!

“It’s been great to hear how much the children are enjoying the new additions and we’re already planning what to build for them next.”

Louise Dance, Head of School at Badbury Park Primary School, added: “We are very grateful to Redrow Thames Valley for this generous donation. The new outdoor equipment has enriched our curriculum by allowing us to plan outdoor activities during lesson time which create memorable moments in the children’s day.

“The pupils have always looked forward to playtime but now can’t wait to get outside and play on the new equipment. On behalf of everyone at Badbury Park Primary School, we want to say a big thank you to Redrow.”

Situated on the edge of the Coate Water Country Park, and within easy reach of both the M4 and Swindon town centre, Badbury Park is said to be perfect for first time buyers and growing families alike.

With its own primary school, and a five-minute distance from a secondary school, the development is deemed the perfect place to set up home.
