Following a successful grant funding application, a Norfolk preschool and playgroup have made significant improvements to their outside area with Playspec bow top railings.

Based in Tasburgh, Norfolk, Tas Valley Preschool and Playgroup originally only had a small area surrounded by wooden fence. The ground within this fence was of grass and in some circumstances not suitable for the small children, as it was often made unsafe by wet weather. The preschool set about deciding how to approach this issue and enable the children to play outside in safe conditions at all times.

The solution was to pave over the existing area and extend it, so that there was still a grass area for digging and planting, followed by the installation of bow top metal railings to secure the area. This was all going to be made possible by submitting a grant funding application to their local authority, Norfolk County Council. As part of the application process, Tas Valley Preschool had to source three different quotes for the metal railings.

The preschool found Alpha Rail online and was quickly provided with a quotation – speed was a key element in this project as the preschool had a strict deadline to submit their grant application.

In total, Alpha Rail supplied 22 linear metres of Playspec bow top, which was delivered directly to the landscaper on site. The metalwork was galvanised as standard followed by a polyester powder coated finish in RAL 6005 moss green to complement the existing fencing on site. The anti-trap features of the Playspec bow top means that the children will be able to play outside safely with no risk present of becoming trapped between the bars.

Commenting, Hayley Defoe from Tas Valley Preschool and Playgroup said: “The delivery process was super-efficient and Alpha Rail was very responsive throughout the whole project. Their quote was the most competitive and ordering was very straightforward. The fencing is now installed, looks fantastic and the children are enjoying their all-weather outside area. We would highly recommend Alpha Rail, thank you, our children will enjoy this resource for years to come.”
