Back to School

Now it’s the 9th September and everyone is back to work, school or nursery and wondering where the summer went.

So its time to organise those PTA meetings and discuss where the fundraising focus will go this year.

[singlepic id=2981 w=320 h=240 float=right]Are you keen to get the children cycling to school and need a cycle shelter perhaps?   Or does your parent waiting area get clogged up with buggies and prams at the beginning and end of the school day.  A buggy park could be the solution – or even a well positioned outdoor classroom so parents can wait for be sheltered from the inevitable British weather.

Did you know that a 2005 survey showed that 31% of children aged 5 – 16 would like to cycle to school but only 1% of them actually do!  The main reason is that there were no secure cycle facilities.  So how about looking at one of our cycle shelters?  [singlepic id=2980 w=320 h=240 float=right]Bespoke structures made to the same high quality as our outdoor classrooms, but with the addition of a fixed cycle rack.  This lovely shelter can be offered with FSC Chain of Custody timbers, a sedum roof and cycle racks for the children (and teachers) bikes.  A beautiful way to shout the sustainable message to your pupils

A well positioned outdoor classroom, provides a convenient gathering point for parents and families waiting for their children to leave the school.  A sociable gathering point with shelter and seating taking the crowd away from the school door way and allowing easier direction of pupils lines to transport services.

Larger shelters also available ideal for bus queues, sheltered lunch areas, outdoor teaching etc.  With or without benching.
