Andy Latham

Midlands & Wales

Year started with Sovereign: 2019

Since 2003 I’ve primarily worked in the education markets on outdoor projects in the North West and Midlands, and also in Wales.

I came to the play equipment sector after 25 years in landscaping which gave me an in depth understanding of outdoor environments, the practicality and challenges of sites, as well as giving me the ability to advise on issues that might arise along the way.

I love working with clients to come up with imaginative ideas and cost-effective solutions to create playgrounds children will love playing in – after all, they’re at very heart of what we do!

I’m a proud father of three, granddad of two, and live in the south Cheshire town that makes Bentley cars, where my son used to work. I love my garden and have a vintage tractor that I enjoy tinkering with. I also spend a lot of time in North Wales. Most of my downtime, however, seems to be spent helping the kids on their projects and houses – I may grumble about this, but I love it really!

Best thing about my job:

Meeting and visiting customers and building the relationships between us.

Favourite playtime game as a child:

We had an old metal climbing frame on tarmac with no safety surface – that’s how old I am, but it was just wonderful to have as a child, regardless, so much fun I remember.

Favourite piece of Sovereign Play equipment:

Dragonheart Fortress, without a doubt! It looks so weird, slightly intimidating, fun-packed, awesome and exciting all at once.

Case Study:

Sherington pre-school

“The installation of the new playground has been more successful than we could have ever hoped. The large pergola has made a wonderful shaded area from the sun and we’ve been able to have activities outside when it’s raining too. The surface change has made the transition of outdoors to indoors, much easier, with no need to change muddy shoes or wellies. Bikes and trikes are much easier to manoeuvre around the flat surface. The mud kitchen, climbing unit and adventure mound are firm favourites. Staff and children enjoy the outdoor space so much more!”


Don’t just take our word for it

Thank you for the amazing job your people did on our playground recently. It looks fantastic. The photographs actually do not do it justice. It looks amazing and has been admired by all who have seen it. The children love it too. Once again thank you for your excellent customer service. It's been a pleasure.

The children are absolutely delighted with the trail and it looks fantastic! I have ‘Tweeted’ some pictures and tagged Sovereign Play in, and one of your colleagues has been in touch with regard to re using it which is of course fine!

I had a look at the play equipment with my grandson yesterday. He gave it a big thumbs up. There were other families there and they all thought it was great. It looks very impressive and value for money, I'm very happy. I have and will recommend Sovereign to others.
