Little Ducklings

The RWB Shed  were approached in June this year, by one of the managers of the Little Ducklings playgroup based at MOD Lyneham. This playgroup is manned by childcare volunteers qualified to educate children, in this instance ages ranging from 3-5 years old. 

The request was to see if The RWB Shed might be able to produce a variety of playground play equipment.

For a variety of reasons the overall project has taken nearly 6 months but is approaching completion, hopefully prior to Christmas.

Graham took on the project and the coordination and liaison between the playgroup and shedders.

Where possible The RWB Shed has provided most materials and labour, however some costs will need to be covered by the playgroup.

Shedders have produced some splendid items which is thanks to Geoffrey, Steve and Phil who completed their task of building a couple of outside kitchens and sand play pits in a relatively short time span.

We were pleased to receive a visit from two of the ladies from the group to thank us for our endeavours and who brought along some tasty treats as a thank you.

They took some group photos to be included in their monthly magazine.

Graham is currently working on the last phase of the project, which us the building a worm farm and has received invaluable help from a couple of fellow members. 

It now only requires the purchase of some Perspex for the viewing sides, but should give the children hours of endless observation fun.

Pictures of some of the items are shown below.
