Youngsters at a primary school in Rutland will now be racing around at playtime after having their playground transformed by a roadway installation.

Artificial grass specialists LazyLawn installed the outdoor playarea at St Nicholas Primary School and Nursery, in Cottesmore, using 184m sq of artificial turf.

LazyLawn’s rabbit mascot, Lazy Larry, visited the school to launch the new playground and meet delighted pupils.

Sarah Lyons, of St Nicholas Primary School and Nursery, said: “Our new outdoor area has complemented our children’s teaching programme and activities, and creates a real wow factor for the nursery.”

Artificial grass was used to revamp the nursery’s playground from a lifeless plot of land into a fun and vibrant playarea containing a roadway for the children to race around in.

The installation, which incorporates a 6m by 6m roadway, was manufactured at LazyLawn’s head office in Market Overton, before being rolled out and assembled on site over three days by the team.

LazyLawn managing director Andy Driver said: “We’re delighted to hear that staff and pupils at the school are so pleased with the new outdoor playarea we have created for them.”
