A group of children ensured their playground hit the big screen after success at a national award.
The youngsters had produced a film about Shiremoor Adventure Playground highlighting the self-made obstacle courses, big swings and the children building a boat from scratch.And their work was shown on the big screen in London at the Adventure Play Awards as they took home the inaugural Beyond London category. Children and staff from Shiremoor Adventure Playground joined around 200 others from adventure playgrounds, play streets and schools to see films they had made about the places where they play.
The awards, now in their 16th year, were organised by charity London Play. In the Beyond London category, Shiremoor beat off stiff competition from Birmingham’s Meriden Adventure Playground and Brookfield School’s adventure playground in Reading.
