Building a beach

digger2Construction of the Blue Coat Play Beach is now complete! All 50 tonnes of sand are in the pit, the wooden balance beams and boardwalk are in place, the Beach Hut stripes have been painted, turf put down and grass seed sown. All that remains is installation of a gateway in the existing fenceline, which should happen within the next week. We need to leave the turf to settle for a little while before we open the area for play. Luckily the warm wet weather is really helping with this.
We are on schedule for the Play Beach to open by the end of June. Once we have launched the new play facility we will deliver some special family and community group events. If you work with a local community group serving young people and are interested in arranging a visit, then please get in touch via the website contact form.
Parents will receive a Play Beach FAQ sheet via Parentmail this week, providing more details about the facility and the benfits of sand play.
