Bridgestone UK has come to the aid of a school in Cheshire, delivering an environmentally friendly method for constructing a new playground and basketball court. The new play area is constructed from recycled truck tyres. The granular rubber surface is perfect for sports usage. It has natural give and is porous and safe.
Mr Hyde, headmaster at the Forest School near Altrincham said, “Everybody is delighted with the new playground. We spoke to Greg Ward from Bridgestone, who looked to provide us with a new eco solution for our new playground. The end result is fantastic parents, teachers and kids are all delighted with the new playground. Because of its porous structure, we no longer have puddles all over the playground. And it’s soft enough to protect the children when they fall. We’re extremely pleased that Bridgestone assisted us on this eco project”.
