Hi!
We've been given £5000 to spend on our outdoor area. Could everyone remind me of good companies to get good quality equipment from.
Thanks

We definitely need a proper mud kitchen and a water tray set/system. Other than that we've been discussing seating and shade. Any advice of successful purchases would be gratefully received.
Thanks x

We have bought a lot of our outdoor equipment from TTS which do a great range. Recent purchases have been the mud kitchen and story telling chair and stools which are fab.

Ours spend a lot of time in the big walk in sandpit, we have lots of things that didn't really cost anything just a bit scrounging :-D tyres, crates, logs, planks, guttering, piping.

If you get your mud kitchen (ssshhhh but ours is more sand most of the time) ask parents to donate old kitchen equipment...we were amazed at what came in.

We've spent most money on the flooring.

Thank you.
We have a walk in sandpit - we made it ourselves from sleepers so it didn't cost much. Our children love it too. We've got lots of kitchen equipment but our homemade mud kitchen fell apart this summer 😕
Will have a look at tts. Thanks
