SSP LTD - Kent Company Completes Wet Pour Rubber Play Area In The Orkney Islands

Kent based playground surfacing company SSP Ltd have recently completed their first wet pour rubber safety surface contract in Orkney for the Shapinsay Community Centre on the island of Shapinsay. ‘We were approached by the Shapinsay Development Trust regarding the re-surfacing of their play park’ explains Andrew Lofting, SSP’s Play Area Surfacing Project Manager ‘The wet pour rubber materials were shipped to the island by container and our play surface installers took the ferry from John O’Groats to the Orkney Island called The Mainland and then a further ferry to Shapinsay’. Wet Pour Rubber Installer Nick Fallon said ‘It was a long journey but the island was very pretty and the people really helpful and friendly. Once we had finished our work for the day we were able to take in the sites. It was definitely the most relaxing project I have worked on’.

The Shapinsay Development Trust successfully bid for grants for their new play surface from Children In Need, The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation, The Gannochy Trust, The Robertson Trust and Orkney Islands Councils Community Development Fund and Early Years Fund. The final phase of the project, replacing the old rubber matting with a new Wetpour surface, was made possible by a donation from Balfour Estate.

SSP Ltd supply and install play and safety surfaces for children’s play for schools, nurseries, pre-schools, visitor centres and local councils. SSP Ltd can be contacted by email below:
