Furnitubes Portman litter bins supplied to Flagship Playscape in West London
Furnitubes International recently supplied their Portman litter bins to the King George’s Field Playscape, Hanwell. The first full size flagship playscape in West London.
The playscape was designed by Landscape Architects Adam White and Andrée Davies from Groundwork London. In 2007 they worked with the children from St Marks Primary school to develop the multi award winning* Groundwork Playscape RHS Show garden. Continuing to work with the school children in 2008 they secured funding and support for the King George’s Field project.
The area used to be a tired old playground with little play equipment and no planting or natural materials. The children who used it complained that they didn’t have anywhere fun to play and explore. Groundwork London wanted to create a traditional playground with a more natural approach to play.
They took the decision to use Furnitubes Portman litterbins as the style worked well with the concept. The timber slats complement the rural environment while the galvanised steel frame has durability together with a modern and fresh appearance.
The playscape was opened by the Mayor on 9th May during an afternoon that included willow weaving, face painting and plenty on food and drink. Furnitubes litter bins proved very handy!
