Wicksteed Playscapes

The children of Vauxhall Road, Wigan, will soon be able to run, jump and swing again in a newly re-generated playground funded by money raised by the Marks & Spencer 5p plastic bag charge.
Environmentally aware UK play company, Wicksteed Playscapes has been selected by Groundwork Lancashire West & Wigan to equip a much needed play area for one of the first five M&S ‘Greener Living Spaces.’
Working on behalf of the environmental charity and Scholes Youth Action Group, Wicksteed will use its extensive knowledge of child’s play to turn the existing barren playground into a stimulating and challenging play area for the local kids.
There will be two play areas; one for under 8’s and another for older children plus a ball-court area.
Phil Holden, from Wicksteed, said, “We’re over the moon to be chosen for this project with leading retailer M&S and environmental charity Groundwork. A great play area can give a real boost to a community and bring people together.
Our play systems situated in the two play areas will give the kids in Vauxhall Road a mix of fun and physical challenge.”
