The Evesham Adventure Playground Association is a charity supporting their local Worcestershire community by giving children, young people and families a space to have fun together and learn in a safe and sustainable environment.
Trained play workers and volunteers organise regular clubs, playschemes and workshops, keeping a focus on sustainability and maintaining spaces built.
The Prime Foundation were able to fund a new workshop whereby children and young people are trained in woodworking. So far, they have held classes on how to use a shave horse, make a wooden spoon, and even build large structures like an edible maze garden.

“Funding from the Prime Foundation has enabled us to create and develop a safe space for children and adults to come together to learn and share new woodwork skills that benefit both themselves and the adventure playground - encouraging new play structure building and ownership of ‘their’ play site.”
